Doha, Qatar: Minister of Transport H E Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti yesterday honoured Mwani Qatar and QTerminals in recognition of their teams' distinct work that led to Hamad Port ranking in the top ten container ports worldwide in 2021 and 2022 on the Container Port Performance Index (CPPI) developed by the World Bank Group and S&P Global Market Intelligence.
Mwani Qatar's CEO Capt Abdulla Mohamed Al Khanji and GCEO of QTerminals Neville Bissett received the appreciation certificates.
Hamad Port in 2021 ranked the world's third most efficient gateway in terms of container transportation and delivery to the administrative areas, and in 2022 ranked eighth in the CPPI's administrative and statistical approaches in terms of the time a ship needed to spend at the port to complete loading and uploading. Hamad Port advanced from the 38th place worldwide in 2020.
The CPPI is intended to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement that will ultimately benefit all stakeholders from shipping lines to national governments to consumers. The CPPI, which in its 2022 edition covers nearly 350 global ports, is based on total port hours per ship call, defined as the time spent between a ship's arrival in a port and its departure from the berth having completed its cargo exchange.
The achievement reflects Hamad Port's efficient operations and modern infrastructure, facilities, and services.
The ranking also shows that Hamad Port keeps moving forward firmly towards more powerful positions as one of the key ports in the Middle East and the region, targeting achieving a more efficient logistics services industry in Qatar and the transformation into a leading global trade hub, thus enhancing its economic diversification plans in step with the QNV2030.
Hamad Port in 2022 received some 1,569 ships, handled over 1.40 million TEUs, some 1.5 million tons of bulk cargo, nearly 45.8 thousand heads of livestock, and more than 72.5 thousand units of vehicles and equipment.
