United Arab Emirates Shipping Report Q2 2015

The UAE is the regional giant when it comes to shipping, and we see no chance of this changing in 2015, asit continues to develop its ports. The behemoth of Jebel Ali - the largest container-handling facility betweenRotterdam and Singapore - is forecast to handle a massive 14.54 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) overthe course of the year, on growth of 3.5%, which will be boosted by an expansion to a handling capacity of19mn TEUs. Port Khalifa, meanwhile - only launched in 2012 - has already handled 2mn TEUs since itstarted operations and is expected to see more double-digit growth in 2015.

Although a relatively sluggish expansion rate in Europe will mean that throughput growth at Jebel Ali willnot exceed 4.5% over the next five years, between the two facilities and ongoing investment therein theemirates will continue to dominate Gulf shipping and remain the premier transhipment destination in theregion.
