Dubai Ports: Core Services

Container Cargo Container handling equipment gives DP World - UAE the flexibility to respond quickly to customers’ requests even during peak seasons. In order to meet the increasing demands and sustain the level of customer service, DP World has taken delivery of 14 mega gantry cranes, installed at the Jebel Ali container terminal in 2005 and an additional 6 in 2006, bringing the total to 45. The gantries manufactured by ZPMC in China are the largest of their kind in the world and the first of their type to be installed in the Middle East. They are able to lift two 40 foot or four 20 foot containers simultaneously.

General Cargo General cargo is an important business for DP World - UAE. The port is attracting more general cargo vessels carrying a wider variety of cargo by offering superior service and handling facilities.

DP World - UAE continues to develop and expand its facilities and special equipment for handling non-containerized cargo as well. Shippers and UAE-based manufacturers continued to take advantage of competitive rates, frequent sailings and the port’s attractions as an international distribution center.

Timber, steel, minerals, bagged rice, sugar, wheat bran and project cargo, along with specialized cargoes such as frozen and chilled foodstuffs and various construction materials are the principal commodities handled. As well as serving the growing local markets for these commodities, the port’s location at the hub of East-West and North-South trade routes makes it attractive for stockpiling cargo for re-export.

The London Metal Exchange (LME) has approved Jebel Ali Port as a good delivery point for four non-ferrous metals. The metals include copper grade A, standard lead, primary nickel and special high-grade zinc.

Bulk Cargo There is a dedicated berth for handling bulk cargo. Foodstuff, minerals, chemicals and petroleum are the principal cargos handled.

Ro/Ro Facility Berthing facilities for Ro/Ro vessels and pure car carriers at both Jebel Ali and Port Rashid terminals are complemented by the large space available for short and long-term storage of cars, buses and construction vehicles imported for both local and re-export markets. Livestock vessels are berthed at the same areas and handled on a direct delivery basis.

Reefer Facility The facilities offer round the clock monitoring, maintenance and repair of reefer containers. Vessels in port are offered on board reefer repair services and spare parts supply, ensuring no delays during transit.

With offices in both terminals, the 24 hour-a-day, 365 day-a-year operation has a modern fleet of 30 Mercedes trucks, 146 trailers and a variety of other equipment to satisfy customers’ transport requirements.
