Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA), the largest industrial company in the United Arab Emirates outside oil and gas, and Abu Dhabi Ports, have joined forces to train young UAE Nationals for roles in shipping and logistics. Abu Dhabi Ports will oversee the training at the Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy, its dedicated regional education centre based in Musaffah.
EGA runs one of the largest shipping and logistics operations of any UAE business, moving some 23 million tonnes of raw materials around the world and making around 10,000 shipments of metal to customers in over 50 countries each year.
Abdulnasser Bin Kalban, Chief Executive Officer of EGA, said: “Shipping and logistics is a key enabler for EGA’s business as well as our broader economy. This partnership with Abu Dhabi Ports will help us develop more young people to take roles in this challenging and important field, contributing to the development of our company and country.” The training will focus on key aspects of shipping and logistics such as ship operations and management, port and terminal management, international trade, supply chain and chartering.
