Fujairah Terminals, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, has signed an agreement with Dubai-based leading organization Al Mayya Group to handle the livestock logistics for the annual import of over a million sheep, goats, and cattle into the UAE.

This deal is one of the largest contracts of its kind in the Emirates. Through this agreement, Fujairah Terminals will grant Al Mayya Group exclusive rights to service livestock at a specially designated quarantine and berth area within its terminal facilities at the Port of Fujairah.

According to the reports, Fujairah’s strategic location on the UAE’s eastern seaboard ensures that sailing times to and from key destinations such as East Africa are significantly reduced. The port, situated on the Arabian Sea, lies within 300km of all seven emirates.

Furthermore, the country’s highly advanced road network will easily connect Al Mayya Group’s allocated port-side area to its other inland facilities across the UAE.

“Fujairah Terminals’ landmark agreement with Al Mayya Group demonstrates our ability to tailor customer-centric solutions that enable the streamlining and enhancement of global trade. Underscored by the support of the Government and Abu Dhabi Ports’ advanced technology and handling capabilities, Fujairah Terminals is well equipped to meet the market’s increasingly wide spectrum of demands and requirements. As the only multipurpose port on the UAE’s eastern seaboard, Fujairah Terminals’ advanced infrastructure and ultra-modern facilities are ideally placed to readily connect and handle inbound sensitive cargo directly from East Africa.”

“Today’s agreement with Fujairah Terminals marks a significant step forward in Al Mayya Group’s ability to streamline its livestock logistics and improve economies of scale, working closely with our partners to serve the direction and vision of the UAE leadership protocol for regional food security and sustainability,” commented Suliyman Halbouni, CEO at Al Mayya Group.
