ABU DHABI PORTS INK AGREEMENT WITH CMA CGM GROUP TO INVEST AED570 MILLION FOR THE NEW TERMINAL


The new Khalifa terminal will be the first semi-automated container port in the GCC region. Abu Dhabi Ports Group and Francebased CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics, announced on Thursday the signing of a 35-year concession agreement that involves an investment of AED570 million in the new terminal at Khalifa Port. A new terminal will be established in Khalifa Port, the first semi-automated container port in the GCC region. The terminal will be managed by a joint venture owned by CMA CGM’s subsidiary CMA Terminals (with a 70 percent stake) and AD Ports Group (30 percent stake). The partners are expected to commit approximately Dh570 million to the project, AD Ports Group said.

A new regional trading hub

With construction starting in 2021, the new terminal is set to be handed over in 2024. In phase 1, an initial quay length of 800 meters and an estimated annual capacity of 1.8 million TEUs. AD Ports Group will be responsible for developing a wide range of supporting marine works and infrastructure. This includes up to a total of 1,200 meters of quay wall, a 3,800-metre breakwater, a fully builtout rail platform, and a 700,000 sqm terminal yard, it said.

The terminal will provide CMA CGM with a new regional hub. It will enable the Group to develop its service offering between Abu Dhabi and South Asia, Western Asia, East Africa, Europe, and the Mediterranean, and the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent.

Rodolphe Saadé, chairman and chief executive officer of the CMA CGM Group, said the new project marks an important milestone in CMA CGM’s development strategy in the region.

This state-of-the-art terminal will contribute to enhancing Khalifa Port’s position as a leading global hub and to boosting the region’s economy, accelerating trade flows in and out of Abu Dhabi.”

Building up the nation’s economy

Abu Dhabi and UAE, in general, have seen increased economic activity thanks to their stable economic environment. This is the reason that has contributed significantly to the economic growth of Abu Dhabi and the UAE and made it a viable destination for foreign investment.

The CMA CGM Group- Abu Dhabi Ports agreement is another milestone in the country to significantly accelerate trade and the development of industry in the UAE and beyond. Falah Mohammed Al Ahbabi, chairman of AD Ports Group, said the UAE has become a key investment destination among many of the world’s leading players seeking to extend their reach into the Middle East.

Al Ahbabi said the agreement would aid the Group to realize its long-term ambitions to become a top 10 ports, industrial, and logistics operator by expanding our capacity and growth across the region and beyond. The project will be completed over five years. It will further develop the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), which will make a significant on the GDP of UAE. With this development, Khalifa port will become a hub for three of the world’s top four shipping companies. It will open up trade routes to new markets in Europe, Africa, Western Asia, and South Asia.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, group CEO, AD Ports Group, said the addition of a new container terminal at Khalifa Port opens a new chapter in the organization’s efforts to become a key facilitator of global trade.

At home, we expect the presence of the shipping line terminal, which will link directly to Khalifa Port’s upcoming rail terminal and utilise its services, to accelerate trade flows moving in and out of the UAE, while also encouraging CMA CGM Group’s customers to consider establishing a presence in Abu Dhabi” said Al Shamisi.

AUTONOMOUS PORT TRUCK SYSTEM INTRODUCED AT ABU DHABI PORTS


The Abu Dhabi Ports and the COSCO Shipping Ports Limited (CSP) are set to build a future together in the region with their first autonomous port truck system. It is the first of its kind in the Middle East. The technologically advanced port boasts of the use of smart automation.

The Deputy CEO, CSP Abu Dhabi – Naser Al Busaeedi, states, “We are proud to be the first terminal in the Middle East to implement an autonomous port truck system following the addition of six Qomolo Q trucks to our container handling fleet. Being efficient and cost-effective, the new vehicles also help us sustain container handling operations for longer periods and continue operating in situations where business continuity is an operational challenge. We look forward to experiencing the full potential of these autonomous vehicles in the coming months.”

The six electric Q-Trucks are produced by Qomolo, the sub-brand of ShangHai Westwell Lab Technology Company. The L5 autonomous freight trucks are equipped with an advanced 360-degree sensory system with traffic monitoring and driving guidance system and are also tasked with supporting the mother vessel in loading and unloading activities within the facility’s container yard. The electric Q-Trucks are powered by a 281kWh battery that carries 80 tons and works in an operating range of 200 km. These trucks can operate up to 44 hours continuously. Enhanced by a temperature-controlled system, the trucks direct vehicle navigation and help transport general and reefer containers. Presently these are on a two-month trial period.

The Head of Ports Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports, Saif Al Mazrouei, stated, “The addition of CSP Abu Dhabi’s Q-Trucks has not only accelerated Khalifa Port’s position as the Middle East’s leading maritime facility but also serves as a prime example of how innovative technologies can transform the maritime and logistics industries.” “Employing solutions powered by ultra-modern technologies, such as artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things and electrification can enable businesses to achieve a higher level of efficiency while simultaneously transforming their respective operations to be more sustainable and cost-efficient.

With the innovative Q-trucks entering the scene, they are set to solidify CSP Abu Dhabi and Khalifa Port’s standing as the most advanced maritime facility in the region. The new Q-Trucks deliver reduced transformation and operating costs and a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. Apart from the autonomous port truck system, the greenfield project saw the adoption of the Fleet Management System (FMS) for overseeing the daily activities utilizing Q-Trucks. While simultaneously connecting to multiple systems, the platform provides real-time monitoring and workflow management process.

The future looks bright as CSP Abu Dhabi and Khalifa Ports will continue to explore the potential applications for AI-powered solutions for terminal and port operations.

RENJITH CAPTAINS CSS ABU DHABI


cssTwenty years of unstinting service! Not everyone knows that I’ve been working here for such a long time. When I look back, I realize that it has been two decades.

 I began my career started with CSS Chennai as an Operations Trainee. I was young and full of expectations. I worked very hard that year and was promoted to Sales Executive. Later on, I had opportunities to work in CSS Mumbai, Delhi, Bahrain, Dubai. And now, I am in Abu Dhabi for the past eight years. 

 My experience with CSS has taught me that progress is never stationary. It has allowed me to evolve according to the situation. My passion for this profession and my dedication to work drives me to achieve both career and personal goals. 

The Logistics Industry – Intimidating yet Exciting

Logistics is both an exciting and intimidating profession. As the saying goes, “No pain, no gain.” However, success makes sacrifices worthwhile.  

Young and Vibrant CSS Abu Dhabi

Our young, vibrant team works with a keen focus on building up the Abu Dhabi portfolio and across the UAE, Muscat, and Oman. Opportunities abound in this region, especially in the logistics sector. We need to strike when the iron is hot and make most of the prospects that open before us.    

 To achieve our targets, we need to upsize the sales team with a dedicated team for Projects (Oil and Gas). This will help us foray into the Oil and Gas project business in Abu Dhabi and tap into the Oman market and contribute to financial outcomes. 

Working Shoulder to Shoulder

The friendly working culture at CSS coupled with the top management’s unstinting support motivates us to perform at our optimum levels. I believe that communication is a two-way street, and we should make sure that there is a constant flow of communication between the teammates. When we appreciate and praise employee efforts and show respect and admiration for their work, it always works out for the company’s best. While people want to know they are respected, we must establish the ground rules for respect.

 I am committed to fulfilling the larger vision for CSS by putting aside personal gain for the group’s well-being.  

 As the great Chinese thinker and philosopher Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

MIDHUN GEORGE MOTIVATES CSS ABU DHABI


cssIt takes a conscious effort to build and maintain a workplace where every employee feels like their work is meaningful. CSS is truly such an organization. 

I joined CSS in September 2013 as a Sales Manager. My main role was to develop individual sales and deploy a new sales team for CSS Abu Dhabi. CSS has provided me with a platform to grow professionally and has given me endless opportunities. 

Today I hold the post of General Manager – Sales (AUH), Network Europe & Scandinavia. My learning curve has always been progressive with CSS. I acquire new skills and knowledge every day with my exposure to value-added services and project cargo shipment. My portfolio includes an additional responsibility to develop the agency network (Europe) of CSS Group. 

 

Team CSS Abu Dhabi

Our branch in Abu Dhabi is strategically located amid the industrial hub. We have good access to airports, seaports, customers, and government departments. The highly dynamic team comprises a group of motivated and driven sales personnel. The operations team is well versed with all procedures, documentation, and other operational technicalities. Tackling hurdles and troubleshooting problems here is quicker, thanks to a team of experts with whom I collaborate.

Present and Future Trends 

The hiatus due to COVID-19 has thrown the industry out of gear. Sales figures have not reached desired targets. Apart from this, we face cutthroat competition from other competitors in the market. Slim margins and an increase in the bargaining power of customers has been the trend in the industry. In such an environment, one needs to stay relevant. We need to explore and focus on niche clients to create newer markets. Now is the time to display the art of selling and customer service.

In the year ahead, we intend to get registered with major government entities for their RFQ. One of the key focus areas for us will be the oil and gas business. If we secure a footing in the oil and gas sectors, the branch will benefit much. Another direction we need to take is to invest in moveable assets.

Once we emerge from this pandemic, the global economy will surely improve. Many positive trends are already underway in the global economy. Many pending projects will open up, and there will be greater prospects in commodity trade and e-commerce. At CSS, we should be well equipped to rein in these positive trends into our business.

Determination and Hard Work – The Way Forward

Hard work is the essential key to success. The focus needs to be on our key responsibilities to exceed expectations. We need to stay motivated, sharpen our skills and keep high standards for ourselves. 

Over the years, the top management at CSS has always been approachable and supportive. Most of all, they have displayed themselves as the epitome of optimism. With their uncompromising sound counsel, CSS Abu Dhabi can achieve

CSS OUTPERFORMS ON DELIVERY FOR UAE-GOVERNMENT OIL PROJECT IN ABU DHABI


cssAbu Dhabi has confirmed the massive discovery of oil which amounts to 22 billion stock tank barrels (STB) of unconventional oil resources, located onshore. Announced in the presence of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, the oil discovery exceeds some of Abu Dhabi’s major fields in terms of resources. 

It has been approved to award exploration blocks in Abu Dhabi to position UAE as a leader in the oil resources. This discovery will further strengthen the UAE’s role as a resource holder with high-quality crude grades, underpinning its position as a reliable energy provider to the world.

cssRecently, CSS has been able to provide seamless logistics for an oil project by a UAE-government entity in Abu Dhabi. On the 25th of November 2020, CSS was commissioned to deliver oil field equipment weighing 60 tons in total. 

This significant project involved the collection of the valves from Scotland, UK and to be delivered to Musaffah, Abu Dhabi. The shipment was carried in a dedicated Charter flight via Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).

cssDelivering within the specified timeline was the vital aspect of this project. The CSS team strategically planned every detail of the operations smoothening out any hassle and delays caused by bottlenecks. Planned to perfection, as always CSS exceeded expectations by delivering the cargo to Mussaffah, Abu Dhabi much before the deadline stipulated by the client. The final phase of this project was completed in December 2020.

UAE – THE EPICENTER FOR COVID-19 VACCINE DISTRIBUTION


cssAbu Dhabi ports is playing “a vital” role in the global fight against COVID-19. With one of the region’s largest ultra-modern pharmaceutical logistics facilities now operational, the port is poised to undertake the storage and distribution of more than 70 million vaccines. 

Abu Dhabi Ports has dedicated a 19,000 square meter temperature-controlled warehouse facility in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), which already houses more than 1 million vials of the vaccine. The facility has the capability to store vaccines and other pharmaceutical products at a range of 2 to 8 degrees as well as the more extreme range of -80 degrees. 

The Hope Consortium- Helping the World Get Through This Global Pandemic

Abu Dhabi is spearheading the launch of the Hope Consortium. This UAE-based public-private partnership includes the Abu Dhabi Ports Company, Etihad Cargo, Rafed, the healthcare purchasing arm of Abu Dhabi-based ADQ, and SkyCell of Switzerland. The Hope Consortium represents a complete supply chain solution to address vaccine transport, demand planning, sourcing, training, and digital technology infrastructure and facilitate vaccine availability worldwide. 

It will offer international governments, non-governmental organizations, and vaccine suppliers a cohesive solution across every supply chain step – from air freight, regional storage and temperature monitoring, inventory management, cold and ultra-cold container solution, and regulatory clearance and healthcare and pharma quality assurance.

Consortium partners already have extensive expertise in the global delivery of millions of COVID-19 related items, such as personal protective equipment, diagnostics consumables, vaccines, and pharmaceuticals.

Distribution of the vaccines, which will be stored in Abu Dhabi Ports Company facilities, will be carried out by Etihad Cargo. The national carrier will leverage its extensive intercontinental network, fleet, and charter flights to supply vaccines globally. Etihad Cargo has outstanding pharmaceutical logistics expertise and specialized pharma and healthcare service, PharmaLife, and the IATA CEIV Pharma certified product to facilitate temperature-sensitive cargo between +250C and -800C.

Rated has already managed large volume products before and during the pandemic for the UAE and humanitarian initiatives. With this collaboration, it can consolidate its efforts to meet the challenges of distributing sensitive pharmaceuticals quickly to global partners in the public and healthcare sectors.

The transportation of vaccines will be done using SkyCell’s hybrid containers. These storage and transportation containers are secured through an IoT monitoring service that tracks temperature conditions to ensure sensitive vaccines are protected even under extreme conditions. These containers maintain steady temperatures for an average of 202 hours (8.4 days) and self-recharge automatically in a cooling chamber or reefer truck.

Amid an anticipated surge in vaccine logistics, this collective expertise will garner a multi-faceted capability to provide seamless logistical solutions.

Abu Dhabi – A Local, Regional, and Global Distribution Hub For COVID-19 Vaccines

KIZAD has one of the largest cold chain and ultra-cold storing in the region and enables the UAE’s drive to spearhead global immunization efforts that will positively impact millions of lives. The vaccine storage processes with the international best practices governing the long-term storage of pharmaceutical products will ensure vaccines’ efficiency. Such a robust solution is necessary because the vaccines are composed of genetic and protein ingredients and must be stored in optimal temperatures for the longest possible period to ensure their efficacy when administered.

Abu Dhabi Ports is ready to play a leading role in the end-to-end supply chain, including storing, processing, and distributing this extremely sensitive product. These facilities at the Abu Dhabi port will leverage its capabilities as an innovation epicenter serving the Middle East and wider world through Abu Dhabi as a supply chain gateway connecting East and West.

Moreover, with two-thirds of the world’s human footprint within a four-hour flight of Abu Dhabi, the investment in technological expertise and world-class infrastructure facilities means it can serve as a global logistical hub too, and for, the world.

SAP’s Vaccine Collaboration Hub (VCH)

SAP has opened a vaccine collaboration hub in Dubai to manage vaccine supply and distribution. SAP’s VCH is built on the SAP Information Collaboration Hub for Life Sciences. It covers the end-to-end process from manufacturing to controlled distribution to administration and post-vaccine monitoring.

Businesses that are part of the vaccine production process, from manufacturers, logistics service providers, and pharmacy companies to wholesalers and dispensers, can run their critical vaccine processes on SAP software.

COVID-19 has put much pressure on the life sciences industry. To bridge the large gap in their supply chain strategy in this industry, SAP’s VCH is a one-stop-shop for the life sciences industry to manage their vaccination procedures and tap into a source of suppliers, even those across industries.

The VCH, part of SAP’s industry cloud strategy, provides the critical network and technology capabilities required to deploy large-scale vaccination programs and drug distribution effectively.

SAP has designed the VCH as an extension to its business network and will support organizations in managing vaccine supply distribution better and helping governments and their industry partners coordinate and successfully carry out mass vaccination programs.

Also, the VCH provides a backbone to better mitigate such emergencies in the future.

cssAir Cargo – In Full Throttle for COVID – 19 Distribution

Governments worldwide have a tall order of reaching the COVID-19 vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna to the masses. In turn, this means that logistics firms have a “mission of a lifetime” with distributing these vaccines.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has released guidance to ensure that the air cargo industry is ready to support the large-scale handling, transport, and distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine. IATA’s Guidance for Vaccine and Pharmaceutical Logistics and Distribution provides recommendations for governments and the logistics supply chain undertakings. The Guidance lines have been prepared in collaborations with a broad range of partners, including the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA), Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), UK Civil Aviation Authority, World Bank, World Customs Organization (WCO) and World Trade Organization (WTO).

The crucial points addressed in IATA’s Guidance for Vaccine and Pharmaceutical Logistics and Distribution are:

  1. To ensure availability of temperature-controlled storage facilities even in such places where such facility is absent.
  2. The chart down the roles, tasks, and responsibilities of vaccine distributors, government authorities, and NGOs.
  3. Re-open borders without quarantine to re-establish air connectivity to ensure adequate capacity is available for vaccine distribution.
  4. Ultra-cold chain facilities across the supply chain to be made available and trained staff to handle time- and temperature-sensitive vaccines. 
  5. Timely regulatory approvals, fast-track clearance by customs and health authorities.
  6. Swift and efficient procedures for overflight and landing permits for operations carrying the COVID-19 vaccine.
  7. Tariff relief to facilitate the movement of the vaccine. 
  8. High level of security to ensure that shipments remain safe from tampering and theft.

These guidelines are in keeping with international standards and procedures related to the transport of vaccines. It will be updated regularly as information is made available to the industry. IATA has also established a joint information-sharing forum for stakeholders. The massive volume of vaccine shipments will require early planning, and this guidance material is important to ensure that they are scalable. 

The complex task of delivering billions of doses of a vaccine, storing it in a deep-frozen state, distributing it to the entire world efficiently will be one of the largest and most complex global logistics operations ever undertaken!
