Chairman’s message

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi

I am pleased and proud to welcome you to the Arab Sea Ports Federation website.

Over recent years, the maritime sector has undergone the major stress test of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated supply chain disruptions, and has emerged stronger, more effective, and more innovative. More than ever, the global economy relies upon maritime shipping and logistics to keep trade flows running smoothly.

Port operators across the region are working hard to optimise infrastructure and develop agile business models that will deliver the resilience and flexibility this new era requires. They are upgrading by using machine learning to enhance fleet routing and rolling-out complementary business lines to expand the portfolio of services available to customers. They are shifting towards a multi-fuel ecosystem for shipping that includes LNG, biofuels, methanol, methane, ammonia, and green hydrogen, among others, as part of wider sustainability measures.

As a result, our work at the Arab Sea Ports Federation is more important than ever. We must strengthen the bonds of cooperation between port operators, reinforcing supply chains and collaborating on key opportunities such as digitalisation, decarbonisation, and the diversification of our business services.

Collaboration requires us to share data and highlight examples of best practice that we can all learn from. We are working with offices across the Federation to establish a data bank from which all member states can benefit, and this website will play a key role in these efforts. Together, all of us are stronger than any one of us alone.

As Chairman, I am truly grateful for the support of our members and for the support of the wise leadership of the United Arab Emirates for the collaborative efforts between our nations. I believe we are entering an exciting period for the maritime industries, as we embrace the potential of new technologies and new approaches.

Ports play a key role in supporting economic growth and diversification. They offer a growing range of challenging and fulfilling roles for our young people. We are building a bright future by working together.
