Gulftainer expands operations in Iraq

Gulftainer expands operations in Iraq

Dubai: UAE-based Gulftainer has won two contracts to operate at the port of Umm Qasr, gateway to Iraq. After having secured management and operation of existing Berth 8 on the south of the port earlier this year, the company ha s followed up with a second award for two berths, Nos. 10 and 11, at the new Iraq Container Terminal, which will begin operations upon completion in mid-2011.
Gulftainer is also entering into cargo-handling agreement with a local partner to open a cargo village at Sulaimaniyah airport while its subsidiary, Momentum Logistics, opened in late 2009 an office and depot at Zakho, in northern Iraq, to help cope with the 1,000 trucks crossing the border from Turkey.
"We are looking at other terminal options and expansion of our transport and logistics activity in Iraq will continue," says Keith Nuttall, Gulftainer's group commercial manager.  [04/08/10]
