“We are delighted to report another solid volume performance with like-for-like growth of 2.8 per cent in 2022, which is once again ahead of industry forecast of a marginal decline of -0.5 per cent,” said Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, group chairman and chief executive officer.

“Growth was driven by Asia Pacific, Americas and Australia region. Encouragingly, Jebel Ali’s (UAE) high margin origin and destination cargo grew by 8.6 per cent, with overall volume growth steady at 1.7 per cent for the year.”

“Looking ahead to 2023, we expect our portfolio to continue to deliver growth, but the outlook remains somewhat uncertain due to rising inflation, higher interest rates and geopolitical uncertainty.”
