  • Gulftainer, the largest terminal operator in the Middle East by number of terminals operated, expanded its operations by 50 percent in 2013 with increased investments in overseas interests and operations.   During the course of the year, Gulftainer accomplished a significant throughput of 6 million TEUs at its terminals. This achievement reinforces Gulftainer’s position as one of the leading operators in the Middle East and supports its goal of handling 18 million TEUs and operating 35 terminals across five continents by 2020.   Across the Middle East in 2013, Gulftainer’s facilities in Iraq and Saudi Arabia witnessed double digit growth and continued to gain momentum as markets expanded due to improved infrastructure and investment prospects. In Iraq, Gulftainer, which currently operates two container berths in Umm Qasr, anticipates an influx in new business opportunities this year as a result of the opening of the newly built 750,000m2 Umm Qasr Logistics Centre.   In Saudi Arabia, following the acquisition of Gulf Stevedoring Contracting Company (GSCCO) in June 2013, Gulftainer Company Limited achieved 34% growth at the Jubail Container Terminal, and saw the import markets grow by 10 per cent.   In the UAE, Gulftainer achieved a healthy three percent increase in cargo throughput over the last year. Its Khorfakkan Container Terminal (KCT), despite a slower year-on-year growth due to the loss of cargo impacted by the international sanctions, has grown at an average of 6.5 % per annum over the last five years. In Lebanon, Gulftainer has begun civil works to develop facilities within the port of Tripoli and aims to start handling vessels by the end of the year.   On a global level, growth in Brazil has been significant with the first container traffic being handled in the Port of Recife in more than a decade. Trade is expected to grow significantly in the coming months as extensive investment and expansion plans are undertaken by the port authorities at Recife.   “The overall growth achieved in the last 12 months has exceeded anything we’ve done in previous years, said Peter Richards, Managing Director of Gulftainer. “We are at an exciting stage where we are being invited by port authorities to enter and establish our facilities in new territories. We are keen on extending our expertise in domestic and international markets to meet our growth strategy and are continuously reviewing new projects. We are confident of meeting our goals and with the long-term investments we fully intend to develop our market share and continue to break expansion records as we go.”

  • NEW Alienware M11x convertible please.

    Status: Acknowledged

    1. When R3 got canned a lot of us were gutted and I myself being Malaysian couldn't even buy an R2 without going through grey imports via local tech forums' dealers. Which was unacceptable since there's a proper Dell Malaysia but at the time for whatever possible reason(s), the newly acquired Alienware line were way too slow to arrive. Top it all off with the reason why R3 got canned was due to low demand???2. Intel Broadwell on 14nm process is coming and there's AMD Kaveri, why can't we have BOTH options available for a new M11x? In-house engineered end product design should overcome the usual TDP, heat and power draw issues instead of just rebadging a Clevo or reference design?3. Competitors such as nVIDIA with their newly launched SHIELD tablet and Razer with their Edge and Edge Pro systems can mount a more serious challenge with each SoC + CPU's progress incoming, so I feel that my idea here are more than just timely.

  • This really hurts customers who want to have a computer that you do not have to press the power button everytime, to just wake from sleep. I was so used to every desktop, laptop, I've owned to be able to wake from sleep/hiberation with a mouse click. Now this option is gone from later bios revisions and it is awful. Please Bring It Back!

    would it be that hard to offer back lit keyboards on ALL models? Are we taking about a $20-$50 expense at most?
