ACT’s Management grateful to all their employees for a record breaking performance during this Ramadan
Aqaba Container Terminal has experienced an impressive growth of 14% on import container volumes and 35% on export containers in June 2016 compared to last year.
With a staggering truck flow increase for import container delivery of 19,9% during Ramadan compared to last year, the performance of ACT employees has been exceptional. “This record handling capability and performance could not have been achieved without the hard work of all ACT employees throughout the festive period of Ramadan and ACT Management takes this opportunity to thank each of them for their hard work and excellent efforts, we thank you and wish all of our employees and their families Eid Mubarak”, says ACT’s CEO Jeppe Jensen.
Aqaba Container Terminal
In 2003, the Aqaba Development Corporation (ADC), on behalf of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority, was on a mission to acquire a strategic partnership to improve the efficiency, capacity and the operational performance of the container terminal in Aqaba. After signing a Terminal Management Contract with ADC in 2004, APM Terminals (part of the global A.P. Møller–Maersk Group), took over the management and operation of the terminal.
A 25-year Joint Development Agreement (JDA) was signed between ADC and the Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) in 2006. Under the contract, APM Terminals Jordan operates, manages and markets ACT in addition to executing the Master Plan, which anticipates achieving a drastic increase of throughput capacity through a combination of physical and operational improvements.
