Abu Dhabi To Become 1st Gulf Port To Host World’s Largest Vessels
Abu Dhabi Ports is to become the first port in the Gulf to handle some of the world’s largest bulk cargo vessels.

With this agreement, Abu Dhabi Ports will be able to develop the port to become the first in the Gulf capable of directly handling these massive ships. Source: supplychaindigital.com
