DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port, shipped four mega poly- ethylene reactors, the largest weighing 227 tons, to Rotter- dam in collaboration with the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics. The shipment was handled with the help of a floating crane from Drydocks World, a DP World Company, and was loaded on two consecutive sailings.
As one of the largest project cargoes loaded on a container ship in the Middle East, the operation mobilised more than 100 specialists across the entire supply chain and involved methodical planning and safe execution. In total, 839 tonnes of cargo, measuring 35 meters in length, 7 meters in height, and 7 meters in width, were transported, occupying 424 TEU slots.
Jebel Ali Port is known for its multimodal connectivity, complemented by extensive logistics facilities. Its offerings such as assembling, warehousing and transport management, manufacturing and fabrication facilities, turnkey operations, and logistics solutions make it a premier gateway, connect- ing more than 150 ports worldwide.
As the 12th largest port globally and the region’s largest poly- functional seaport, it has the capacity to handle 22.4 million TEUs. The remarkable execution of this project proves the port’s capability of handling the growing demand for heavy lift and project cargo, regardless of the size or weight.
