Jordan : APM Terminals, Jordanian partner officially open expanded ALV.

APM Terminals, with local Jordanian partner Kawar Group, formally inaugurated the expanded Aqaba Logistics Village (ALV) on 12th November, with an official ceremony attended by Jordanian Prime Minister His Excellency Abdullah Ensour, the Minister of Transport His Excellency Ayman Hatahet and Chief Commissioner of Aqaba Special Economic Zone, His Excellency Hani Mulki, among other VIPs.

The recently completed ALV Phase 2 facility includes 13,000 square meters (3.2 acres) of multi-purpose warehousing alongside 40,000 square meters (9.8 acres) of open yard.

ALV Phase 2 has been developed to allow the flexibility of handling a vast range of cargoes as regional and global trading patterns continue to evolve in the Middle East.

ALV's developed land is now encompassing 24 hectares (59 acres) with a further 20 hectares (49 acres) of area expected to be developed within the next two years.

CEO of Aqaba Logistics Village, Hakam Abul Feilat, said: This modern multi-purpose facility represents a new step for the Port of Aqaba and the Kingdom of Jordan as we continue toward our goal of becoming an essential regional commercial and logistics hub. Our upgraded services and capabilities will help to create an efficient, economical and reliable supply chain for importers and distributors in Jordan, the Levant and inland points in the Middle East.
