ACT nominated for ‘Port Management and Infrastructure’ Award

Oct 29,2019 - Last updated at Oct 29,2019

Aqaba Container  Terminal (ACT), the preferred gateway for the Levant region and beyond, has been recently nominated as finalist for the coveted Lloyd’s List South Asia, Middle East and Africa 2019 “Port Management and Infrastructure” Award.

Through constant investment and development, ACT has become the logistical and economic backbone of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority. Over the years, ACT developed a reputation for efficiency and transparency in its operations, thanks in part to over $300 million of investment in building the terminal capacity and improving operations over the years.

Since 2015, total throughput has grown by 7 per cent, while gross crane productivity has increased 12 per cent. ACT is operated as a joint venture between the Aqaba Development Corporation and APM Terminals; ACT serves as Jordan’s only container terminal and its primary commercial port, playing a vital role in supporting the national and regional economies.
