Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/16/2015 --The UAE will continue to dominate the Gulf region's shipping sector as it continues to invest heavily in its facilities. Not only has the massive Khalifa Port had a hugely successful opening since beginning operations at the close of 2012, but the established behemoth, Jebel Ali, has continued to expand its capacity, helping it to keep ahead from the growing competition in the region. Its capacity will be increased to 19mn containers in 2015. Even the smaller Sharjah terminals are performing well, with record growth in recent years. As such we project continued strong growth at the facilities, especially as the global economy looks set to continue its resurgence from the doldrums in 2015.
