The UAE has reopened the Jebel Ali export terminal after it halted operations on Sunday morning due to bad weather conditions, a shipping source told Reuters. “The Jebel Ali ports has now reopened and is operating normally, but the weather is still bad which might lead to another closure,” the source said.
