DP World’s Jebel Ali port has received a first container carrying exports moved through the Israeli port of Ashdod, destined for Jafza-based Kimoha Entrepreneurs. The company purchased the shipment containing adhesive tapes from Davik, an Israeli manufacturer of pressure-sensitive self-adhesive tapes.
Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, CEO and Chairman of DP World, said: “We are committed to contribute everything we can to support the vision of the UAE leadership to foster new trade ties across the world as part of accelerating economic growth. This new shipment for Kimoha is just the beginning of trade and commercial activities between the UAE and Israel.”
DP World has combined the capacity and capabilities of Jebel Ali port and Jafza to create multimodal trade and logistics hub that connects traders and owners to over 3.5 billion consumers. Kiran Asher, Chairman, Kimoha Entrepreneurs noted: “We have been running operations from Jafza since 1988, and I must say that it is an ideal location to set up industries and connect with the world. Emirates NBD, the largest banking group in the UAE, supported this transaction seamlessly.”
