DP World’s Jebel Ali port has handled the export of 75,000 tonnes of rebar for Conares, one of the leading steel manufacturers in the Middle East, in a shipment destined for North America.
The rebars, manufactured at Conares’ facility in the industrial sector of Jafza, were exported internationally for the first time, with end-to-end cargo handling carried out by the Jebel Ali port team. This initial operation is expected to pave the way for many more such exports.
Bharat Bhatia, Chairman of Conares, said: “This export shipment showcases our commitment towards the same causes that DP World UAE Region endorses. The tireless work and the unending support of the team at DP World and Jafza has made the success of this shipment possible.”
The export shipment coincided with the 10th anniversary of the Conares rebar mill. Over the past decade the company has handled 10 million tonnes of steel and achieved AED 10 billion in revenue. It also underlined the fact that iron and steel are the top traded commodities at Jafza.
