Gulftainer Company Ltd

UAE-based port operator Gulftainer is planning to invest $500 million over two years as it expands in Russia and Saudi Arabia.

The company, which operates the Russian port of Ust-Luga, aims to announce further expansion in the country before the end of the third quarter 2013, vice-chairman Badr Jafar said. "We're in talks with a number of parties in Russia, with the government, with private companies. Expansion is not necessarily new ports, but related logistics including in-land container depots, potentially rail," he said.

Gulftainer is planning to invest in Saudi Arabia to capitalise on opportunities created by increased public spending, Jafar added.
