The Phase 2 value proposition

ALV’s Phase 2 development will focus on the following customer requirements:

1. Regional distribution
Regional turmoil has dramatically increased Aqaba’s importance as a stable hub for the safe and secure storage and onwards transit of all cargo types. Importers and distributers of all kinds are beginning to recognise that a base in Aqaba gives access not only to the Levant, but to the full MENA region and beyond. With regular calls from 15 shipping lines at the next door Aqaba Container Terminal, ALV is a prime hub location.

2. Transit cross-docking
With 16 ramps and dock levellers at its new warehouse, ALV will ensure that Aqaba remains the #1 location for transit imports to Iraq. Despite recent border closures, we are confident that Aqaba will always remain a vital gateway for Jordan’s neighbouring countries. Transit containers are discharged from the vessel a stone’s throw from our warehouse and cargo can be quickly transferred from container to truck upon arrival to ALV. Empty containers are quickly returned to make this a highly efficient and cost-effective solution.

3. International standards
ALV Phase 2 will upgrade Jordan’s cargo handling capabilities significantly by offering:
• The most flexible and sophisticated logistics solutions in Aqaba, including full supply chain integration with our customers
• Management by APM Terminals, a trusted global operator of marine and inland cargo terminals
• International safety and business governance standards.
