(MENAFN) DP World, UAE region's senior vice president and managing director, Mohammed Al Muallem, stated that the company has finished the first phase of revamping the Al Hamriya Port, reported Arabian Business.
Al Muallem said that the upgrades will strengthen the port's traditional capability and enhance its strategic location in the centre of Dubai, enabling it to meet customers and fishermen's growing demands.
He added that the phase includes the upgrading of 1 million sq ft of open yards, which has been paved, metal fenced, and gated, and are now available for lease for traders and logistics firms.
