Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) received several international accolades at two award ceremonies that took place in Dubai on November 28 and December 4, thus placing Aqaba at the fore front of the maritime excellence in the busiest hub of the region.

The two awards ceremonies were attended by close to 600 experts and leaders from the Maritime Industry, including leading global shipping lines, ports and terminals operators, tankers, shipyards, maritime insurance, maritime training centres and port authorities.

At Lloyd’s List South Asia, Middle East & Africa Award ceremony, ACT’s operational excellence was underlined repeatedly by the independent panel of maritime experts who nominated the Jordanian container terminal as finalist for three most coveted awards: the Port Operator Award, the Safety Award and the Hutchinson Environment Award.

Few days later, ACT received the Most Sustainable Port Development Award from the panel of judges of the Transport Arabia Excellence Awards. At the ceremony, ACT was commended for its regional leadership in the field of operational reliability, safety and security and for its exceptional efforts to constantly promoting environmental conservation.
