The newly established Fujairah Terminals, under the management of Abu Dhabi Ports, has welcomed its first container feeder vessel, the Dubai Alliance.

This is the first ship to arrive at the terminal, which is wholly owned by Abu Dhabi Ports, following the signing of a concession agreement with the Port of Fujairah in June this year.

Following the signing of the 35-year concession agreement with the Fujairah Port, that granted Abu Dhabi Ports exclusive rights to develop port infrastructure and undertake operations for containers, general cargo, RoRo and cruise ships, Fujairah Terminals was established and took over management of the terminals from Fujairah Port Authority from August 1.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: "We are marking the beginning of a new era for both Abu Dhabi Ports and the Port of Fujairah under the new management of Fujairah Terminals. The investment in port infrastructure will go a long way to strengthening development and operation of ports and terminals across the UAE and its contribution to the growth of a diversified, knowledge-based economy."
