Gulftainer Fast-tracks medical supply consignments, supports UAE's COVID-19 response

Initiative seeks to reach medical supply containers to customers on priority basis


Dubai-UAE: Gulftainer, the world’s largest privately-owned, independent port operator based in the UAE, has launched an interim and complimentary ‘Express Service Lane’ initiative to prioritise the delivery of medical supply consignments at its ports across the UAE.

The move is part of the company’s commitment to accelerating logistical procedures and fast-tracking the availability of medical supplies to consumers across the nation. Through this effort, Gulftainer seeks to support the preventive measures and national initiatives launched by the UAE government in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of the initiative, Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT) is also actively encouraging customers to use its secured digital payment methods while benefiting from convenient and seamless online processing of transactions.

Speaking on the new initiative, Peter Richards, Group CEO, Gulftainer, said: “The prompt and efficient delivery of medical equipment and supplies plays a crucial role in ensuring the health of the nation – particularly during these unprecedented times when the world is battling a pandemic. The Express Service Lane enables our ports across UAE to expedite critical supplies and get them to the brave caregivers in the community in the shortest time possible.”

He added: “We are fully aligned with the government’s safety guidelines and have introduced additional precautionary health, hygiene and safety measures across all operations, including safe-distancing, sanitisation, and training and education for all operational staff. Our operational protocols have been enhanced to ensure maximum safety for all members of the logistics community including but not limited to vessel crewmembers, on dock labour, and truckers across the UAE.”
