Jebel Ali Port receives first container from Israel


DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port has received a container carrying an export shipment from Israel via the Ashdod Port.

The shipment for Jafza-based Kimoha Entrepreneurs FZCO contained adhesive tapes manufactured by the Israeli firm Davik. 

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, CEO and Chairman of DP World said: "We are committed to contribute everything we can in our capacity to support the vision of the UAE leadership to foster new trade ties across the world as part of accelerating economic growth."

"The exceptional facilities at Jebel Ali Port, one of the busiest ports in the world, and Jafza are geared to add value to the expansion of the UAE’s economic and trade engagement. This new shipment for Kimoha is just the beginning of trade and commercial activities between the UAE and Israel," he added.

DP World has combined the capacity and capabilities of Jebel Ali Port and Jafza to create multimodal trade and logistics hub at Jebel Ali that connects traders and owners to over 3.5 billion consumers.

The flagship port is a premier gateway for over 80 weekly shipping services, connecting more than 150 ports worldwide. 

DP World has put in place stringent measures to contain and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard the lives of those working at the port and free zone while ensuring trade flow.
