Koper1The container quayside at the southern end of Pier I in the Port of Koper has been extended by 100 metres.

Today, in the presence of Minister of Infrastructure Jernej Vrtovec, the new quayside was ceremonially handed over.

The extended quayside with a new berth, which we have named Link 7D, is just one part of a large investment as they continue to build a container storage area of almost 25,000 m2 in the quayside’s hinterland. Construction is taking place offshore, so the entire structure is supported by steel piles. There will be 770 piles in total, with an average length of 65 metres. The new storage areas are expected to be ready in the first quarter of next year. The annual capacity of the container terminal will then be one and a half million TEUs. The total investment is worth €45.6 million; part of the funding was obtained from the European NAPA4CORE project. "The containerisation of goods in world trade has reached unprecedented proportions. Shipowners are building bigger and bigger ships and ports need to adapt to this. Otherwise, we would be out of all major commodity flows. That is why the new acquisition, the new Link 7D, is only the beginning," said the CEO of the Port of Koper, Dimitrij Zadel, emphasising the importance of the investment.

Given that half of all containers handled in Koper today (almost one million TEUs in 2020) already travel by rail, the future development of the Port of Koper depends to a large extent on the timely construction of an additional rail link to the hinterland. The so-called second track will be operational in 2026, but the country is also modernising other parts of the Slovenian rail network. The Slovenian Minister of Infrastructure, Jernej Vrtovec emphasized that the ministry would do everything in its power to support the development projects of the Port of Koper, as this would also speed up the development of Slovenian logistics.

In the Port of Koper, they have also ordered two new Super-post-Panamax container cranes (there are already two), which will arrive at the end of next year. In addition, after 2022, they will start building the northern part of Pier I, which will also be dedicated to containers. "If we take into account that the construction of the second track is worth one billion euros, it is easier to understand the bold and ambitious strategy of Luka Koper to invest half a billion euros by 2025 to take advantage of the increased railway capacities," said Uroš Ilić, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the company, summarising the strategic business plan.

Container-handling activity at Pier I started in 1979, when the first 150 m of quay were built. Since then, including the latest extension, the operational quay has been lengthened four times. Today, the container quay is almost 700 m long and they have nine container cranes in operation. Next year, there will be 11. In four decades, they have handled almost 12 million containers (TEUs) at Pier I, two thirds of them in the last 10 years. In terms of containers handled, the Port of Koper operates the largest container terminal in the Adriatic.

“We have come a long way improving the safety of our workplace. We have focused on infrastructural changes, procedures and training, but above all, this is the result of great teamwork”, says Patricia Saldaña, Head of Health, Safety, Security and Environment at APM Terminals Yucatán.

A container terminal is an industrial environment, where people work with large vessels, heavy machinery, suspended loads, tools and moving trucks and containers in the yard.

UAE first vaccine shipment The world’s newest anti-viral treatment for COVID-19, Sotrovimab, is now available for early treatment of certain categories COVID-19 patients in the UAE following a landmark agreement between the Abu Dhabi Department of Health, the country’s leading group purchasing organization (GPO) Rafed, and global innovative biopharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

With the arrival of the first shipment yesterday in Abu Dhabi airport, Abu Dhabi become the first location globally to receive this drug.

Sotrovimab is a monoclonal antibody treatment delivered through intravenous therapy. Sotrovimab can be used to treat adults and children above the age of 12 who meet certain criteria and are at risk of progressing to severe COVID-19, as per protocols that have been developed by the National Scientific Committee. Studies have shown the medicine to prevent hospitalization and death in 85% of early selected treatment cases and can work on all known variations to date.

Following USA Food and Drug Agency Emergency use authorization approval, the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) issued its endorsement of the new GSK medicine following a national assessment. Abu Dhabi Department of Health & Rafed executed its agreement with the manufacturer to ensure deliveries as early as June and July, enabling patients in the UAE to be among the first in the world to access the new therapy. The National Scientific Committee in MoHAP & Abu Dhabi Department of Health have worked on the treatment protocols that will guide doctors in defining at risk patients and ensuring that they have access to Sotrovimab according to their risk profile and eligibility criteria.

Abu Dhabi-based Rafed will facilitate the procurement, storage and distribution of Sotrovimab via the Rafed Distribution Center - the Region’s largest specialized cold-storage facility. The Center has played a vital role to support the efforts of the HOPE Consortium, and is a milestone collaboration by healthcare, logistics and supply chain entities designed to facilitate the ongoing evolution of Abu Dhabi’s medical and life science offering to combat the pandemic, nationally and internationally

HE Dr. Jamal Mohamed Kaabi, Undersecretary for the Abu Dhabi Department of Health, said: “Abu Dhabi continues in its efforts to maintain its number one city position globally in terms of resilience and safety in COVID19 times. Through the non-ending support and guidance from our leadership, we continue in our daily preemptive efforts to search, assess and source through local and international collaboration, the best evidence-based treatment to our population in Abu Dhabi, UAE and beyond. This medicine is at the forefront of pharmaceutical advancement and is a powerful tool in our fight to end this pandemic. We look forward to implement the eligibility criteria for emergency use of Sotrovimab as part of Abu Dhabi’s commitment to lead an all-encompassing COVID -19 response in prevention, treatment and care.”

Rashed Al Qubaisi, CEO of Rafed said: “Sotrovimab represents a massive breakthrough in the fight against COVID-19. Through our close collaboration and partnership with the Department of Health and GSK, we have been able to work swiftly in the procurement of the medication to ensure an effective and timely roll-out across the UAE. The Rafed Distribution Center continues to fulfil its mission of better serving the UAE public and extending Abu Dhabi’s Covid-19 response to the world.”

As the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi finalizes a coherent framework to determine eligibility for Sotrovimab treatment, Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of the Etihad Aviation Group and Hope Consortium, have transported the first batch of Sotrovimab into the UAE utilizing its IATA CEIV-certified PharmaLife product.

Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “This achievement further elevates Abu Dhabi’s leading position in the fight against COVID-19, and firmly illustrates the combined capabilities of those entities at the forefront of the capital’s mission. As the UAE’s national carrier, Etihad has played a critical role facilitating the transportation of vaccines and medical supplies to and from the UAE with its specialist pharmaceutical logistics solution."

After receiving positive scientific opinion by the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) Committee for Human Medicinal Products - an important step for the use of the medication for early treatment of COVID-19 across Europe - GSK has submitted an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) application to the US Food and Drug Administration and the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and got approval from both.

“We have been working very closely with the Department of Health and Rafed since the interim results of the clinical trials with Sotrovimab were available” said Gizem Akalin, Managing Director and Vice President, GSK Gulf. “The DOH and Rafed have been agile and passionate about accelerating patient access to promising new treatments to confront COVID-19”.

“Our partnership with DOH and Rafed is holistic, securing early access to Sotrovimab so that the population in Abu Dhabi and UAE will be among the first in the world to get this new treatment”, Akalin said. “There is a great level of scientific and medical collaboration to ensure that medical teams are ready and equipped. As GSK, we see this close cooperation as another sign of Abu Dhabi’s rapid development as a hub for first class treatment, medicines research, logistics and manufacturing”

The high efficiency and provision of General Administration of Customs has been a great support to all the efforts involved throughout the process of receiving the Sotrovimab medication at the Abu Dhabi International Airport, as they have ensured a smooth and rapid custom clearing for the medication to facilitate the release of the shipment from the airport customs port at the earliest, thereby enabling the medication to reach patients faster.

APM Digital processing RussiaA paperless export processing system has been introduced at Petrolesport (PLP) and Ust-Luga Container Terminal (ULCT), Russia.

The company’s First Container Terminal (FCT) become the first Russian terminal to transfer to a fully paperless export management system for containers in 2020. Now customers of all marine terminals of the Group in the North-West of Russia will be able to manage export shipments via the Global Ports Unified Customer Portal.

The terminals are part of the Global Ports group, a joint venture that combines the global expertise of APM Terminals (30.75%) with the local knowledge of Delo (30.75%), one of the largest private transportation and logistics holding companies in Russia. Global Ports is the leading operator of container terminals in the Russian market by capacity and container throughput based on 2020 throughput and information published by the Association of Sea Commercial Ports.

Alexey Ermolin, Chief Information Officer of Global Ports, said: “The experience of implementing electronic export management at FCT has proven its success, and we have decided to expand this service to all of the Group's marine terminals in the North-West of Russia. Now customers of PLP and ULCT do not need to re-enter data into the Federal Customs Service (FCS) system – the information in the customer's account on our portal is automatically transferred to the customs authority in electronic form. In September 2021, we are planning to implement the service at Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company, located in the deep-water port of Vostochny”.

Digitising the last "paper" element of export processing, a shipment order, speeds up the processing of cargo shipments. The technology of the digital exchange of legally binding documents with the customs authority is based on Global Ports’ Customer Portal and Sea Port’s Portal software functionality1.

The adoption of this technology means that the procedure of order preparation by forwarding companies and issuance of documents confirmed by customs has been completely digitised. Moreover, once a digital order has been issued, the terminal may start loading a container onto a vessel immediately without additional approval, further speeding up the process. All participants of the process – the forwarding company, the customs authority, the terminal and the shipping line – have online access to information about the status at all stages of the process.

The information operator of the service is ROLIS, an IT-solutions developer (a Global Ports Group company). ROLIS is certified to transmit information to the FCS in electronic form.

Global Ports is the leader in digitisation among the ports of the Russian Federation. As a result of the development of its IT services, the total volume of electronic cargo documents at the Group's terminals reached 80%.
