“The Express Service Lane enables our ports across the UAE to expedite critical supplies and get them to the brave caregivers in the community in the shortest time possible,” said Peter Richards, group CEO of Gulftainer.

As part of the initiative, Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT) is also actively encouraging customers to use its secured digital payment methods for online processing of transactions.

“Our operational protocols have been enhanced to ensure maximum safety for all members of the logistics community including but not limited to vessel crewmembers, on dock labour, and truckers across the UAE. We are fully aligned with the government’s safety guidelines and have introduced additional precautionary health, hygiene and safety measures across all operations, including safe-distancing, sanitisation, and training and education for all operational staff,” added Richards.
