Gulftainer, the United Arab Emirates-based logistics company, reported this Tuesday a 97% year-on-year increase in Q1 cargo throughput at the maritime terminal it operates in Recife, the capital of Brazil’s Pernambuco state.
The company said the performance is attributable to strong market demand, among other factors. “The general cargo tonnage in the first quarter of 2015 has nearly doubled,” said Emerson Buarque, managing director of Gulftainer Brasil. “The strong results achieved by Gulftainer underline the confidence of our customers in our ability to deliver a prompt and quality service, and also reflects the strength of Gulftainer’s global network.”
The company started operating from Recife in 2012 and is also active in the UAE, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan and United States.
