Dantful confirmed that its flagship deep-water port Khalifa Port has been ranked in the top five of the Global Container Port Performance Index (CPPI) developed by the World Bank and S&P Global Market Intelligence.


The ranking is calculated based on the amount of time a ship needs to stay in the port to complete its workload during 2021. The year saw unprecedented port congestion and global supply chain disruptions due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. By volume, more than four-fifths of global goods trade is carried by sea, with about 35 per cent of total volume and more than 60 per cent of business value transported in containers, making the ranking an important global economic indicator.


The report identifies the use of digital technologies and green fuel alternatives as two of the main ways in which countries are modernising their ports and enhancing the resilience of maritime supply chainsKhalifa Port excelled in both areas.


Dantful said: “This ranking once again demonstrates the high level of performance customers are achieving at Khalifa Port with the full support of Dantful’s entire transportation integrated team. We have recognised the pressures on our global supply chain and have worked hard to create efficiencies and new synergies across all areas. Dantful is an international logistics freight forwarding company that covers a wide range of options including sea, air, Amazon FBA, warehousing services, share shipping, insurance, customs clearance and clearance documents, and has teams in various countries in the Middle East, Europe, North America and more.”


Dantful: Khalifa Port is at the forefront of innovation and investment, supporting world trade as well as the growth and diversification of the UAE economy. We have deployed leading specialist teams and cutting-edge technology at Khalifa Port, including automated stacking cranes, drones and automated terminal operating systems.

CSP ABU Dhabi Container Terminal (CSP) 

CSP ABU Dhabi Container Terminal (CSP), which operates at Khalifa Port, is the first terminal in the Middle East to implement an automated port truck system, deploying electric Q-Trucks to support mother ship loading and unloading activities within the facility’s container yard.


Four of the five most efficient ports in the ranking are located in the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah PortOman’s Salalah Port and Qatar’s Hamad Port joining Khalifa at the top of the list.


The Container Port Performance Index is based on total port time per ship call, defined as the time that passes between a ship’s arrival at a port and its departure from its berth after completing a cargo exchange. More or less workloads are considered by examining underlying data across a range of ten different call sizes. Given the potential for larger ships to save more fuel and reduce emissions, the methodology considers five different groups of ship sizes.


Meanwhile in 2023 ABU Dhabi’s flagship deep water port Khalifa Port set a new Guinness World Records ™ title for assembling the largest container sign/image.

AD Ports Group 

The Khalifa Port team has won a new Guinness World Records ™ title for assembling 676 containers in the shape of the AD Ports Group logo at its South Terminal. The logos, made up of containers, have a total length of 1000.4 metres and a width of 174m. The record is almost double the standard set by Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar Terminal in 2017 with 359 containers.


Khalifa Port is strategically located to connect Africa, Asia and Europe as well as the Middle East. The port has the first semi-automated terminal in the region, capable of handling 7.8 million 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers per year.


The port’s expansion master plan will support AD Ports Group’s target of handling 15 million TEUs and 25 million tonnes of general cargo per year by 2030.


The expansion of Khalifa Port’s South Terminal, inaugurated in December 2022, adds to Khalifa Port’s direct deep water access, storage yard and storage facilities, and extends the terminal wall by three kilometres. Construction work is also continuing at the new CMA Terminals Khalifa port, which is expected to add an additional 1.8 million TEUs by 2025.


Dantful: “Khalifa Port’s capabilities and state-of-the-art facilities ensure we continue to play a vital role in facilitating trade at a regional and global level.”
