Strike greets DP World handover at Aden

Industry Database

DP World has now officially taken over management of box handling at the Port of Aden under a joint venture with the Yemen Gulf of Aden Port Corporation.

The agreement also includes the Ma'alla container terminal.

Workers at Aden immediately commenced a comprehensive strike in protest at the move.
