Sharjah-based Gulftainer has been recommended by DNV for certification to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 & OHSAS 18001:2007.

The certifications cover performance in port management and operations, including areas such as container repair, logistics centre management, freight forwarding and contract logistics.

Gulftainer Group managing director Peter Richards said: “As major port operators and managers of container terminals with extensive transport and logistics activities, Gulftainer has always insisted on and maintained the highest standards in all areas, including health and safety.

“We take these issues very seriously, and certified training and safety officers are employed to train and develop staff throughout their careers, and also to ensure that systems are in place to promote safe working practices.”

Gulftainer Group has more than 30 years’ experience in the UAE and around the world. It operates two UAE ports on behalf of the Sharjah Port Authority: Khorfakkan Container Terminal and Sharjah Container Terminal.

Gulftainer’s logistics subsidiary, Momentum Logistics, was established in 2008 to take over the Group’s transportation and logistics business. It now has offices throughout the Middle East.
