Abu Dhabi Ports unit Fujairah Terminals has inked an agreement with Al Mayya Group to handle the import of livestock into the UAE.

The agreement covers the annual import of more than a million sheep, goat and cattle into the UAE, one of the largest contracts of its kind.

Under deal Fujairah Terminals will grant Al Mayya Group exclusive rights to service livestock at a specially designated quarantine and berth area situated within its terminal facilities at the Port of Fujairah.

AbdulAziz Al Balooshi, CEO at Fujairah Terminals, said: “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.

“As the only multipurpose port on the UAE’s eastern seaboard, Fujairah Terminals’ advanced infrastructure and ultra-modern facilities is ideally placed to readily connect and handle inbound sensitive cargo directly from East Africa.”

Suliyman Halbouni, CEO, Al Mayya Group, said: “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.”
