Gulftainer handles 2 million TEU at Iraq Container Terminal in 9 years


Gulftainer's Iraq Container Terminal (ICT) at Umm Qasr Port in southern Iraq has enjoyed a container throughput of two million TEU in less than nine years, reports Dubai's Transport & Logistics Middle East.
Gulftainer was the first foreign investor to launch a joint venture with the General Company for Ports of Iraq (GCPI) in Umm Qasr Port, starting operations at the Iraq Project Terminal on Berth 8 in the South Port in August 2010, followed by ICT on Berth 11 in the North Port in 2012.
The company has invested heavily in ICT to develop a 376-metre berth and container storage area within the 342,000-square metre terminal that currently has an annual capacity of 400,000 TEU.
The berth is equipped with two Mitsubishi ship-to-shore gantry cranes, supported by two Gottwald mobile harbour cranes with a 100-tonne lifting capacity,
ICT employs 250 locals and 50 expatriates and also has 18 reach stackers, two empty handlers and 28 terminal tractors.
Said Gulftainer country manager Nic Gray: "With its extensive experience in terminal management that dates back to 1976, Gulftainer's efforts have helped enhance the capacity of these terminals to meet future growth."
