Abu Dhabi Port Associates Fujairah Terminals and Al Mayya Group have signed an agreement to import more than one million sheep, goats and cattle annually from the UAE.
Fujairah Terminals will grant Al Mayya Group exclusive rights to service livestock at a specially designated quarantine and berth area situated within its terminal facilities at the Port of Fujairah.
Fujairah’s strategic location on the UAE’s eastern seaboard ensures a much shorter sailing time to and from key destinations including East Africa. The port, situated on the Arabian Sea, lies within 300km of all seven emirates. Thanks to the country’s highly advanced road network, it will easily connect Al Mayya Group’s allocated port-side area to its other inland facilities across the UAE.
AbdulAziz Al Balooshi, CEO at Fujairah Terminals, said: “Fujairah Terminals’ landmark agreement with Al Mayya Group demonstrates our ability to tailor customer-centric solutions that enable the streamlining and enhancement of global trade.
“Underscored by the support of the Government and Abu Dhabi Ports’ advanced technology and handling capabilities, Fujairah Terminals is well equipped to meet the market’s increasingly wide spectrum of demands and requirements.
“As the only multipurpose port on the UAE’s eastern seaboard, Fujairah Terminals’ advanced infrastructure and ultra-modern facilities is ideally placed to readily connect and handle inbound sensitive cargo directly from East Africa,” he added. Find more.
