Abu Dhabi Ports expects growth in containerisation, as it works to maintain supply chain continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking on a webinar, Robert Sutton, head of logistics cluster at Abu Dhabi Ports, commented: “We can expect continued growth in containerisation. The ports have not slowed down through this period. If anything, we’ve seen an upswing based on demand so we don’t see a major impact.”
He described the pandemic as a “black swan event” which will lead to a more risk averse approach to sourcing, featuring a blended mix of offshore, near shore and onshore.
