UAE's SCT container volumes up 14 percent in H1

(MENAFN) Gulftainer, the largest privately owned terminal operator in the Middle East, posted a 14 percent growth in container volumes in the January-June period at its Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT), Khaleej Times reported.

The first-half growth is attributed in part to the strong UAE-East Africa trade route, along with the new projects and developments in Sharjah region.

Gulftainer's current portfolio covers four UAE operations in Khorfakkan, Sharjah, Hamriyah and Ruwais, as well as activities at Umm Qasr, in Iraq, Tripoli Port in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.

"The positive performance of SCT is led by the improved trade climate, specifically between the UAE and African nations. The port continues to be a popular choice for shipping lines as it offers a flexible alternative to access the UAE," MD of Gulftainer said.
