Port Rashid: Community in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Port Rashid, also referred to as Mina Rashid, is a man made, commercial port in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Named after Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the port opened in 1972. At the time the port only had two gantry cranes and a capacity of less than 100,000 TEUs. In 1978, the port was expanded to include 35 berths. Today, the port [which has a depth of 13 metres (43 ft)] has 9 gantry cranes and a capacity of 1,500,000 TEUs.
