J.J. Scott Of Sea-Land Named Director Of Mideast Por
James J. Scott Jr. of Sea-Land Service, Inc. has been named executive director for the Port Authority of Jebel Ali, a new Mideast port due to become fully operational in the second quarter of 1979. Announcement of the appointment has been made by Sea- Land following the signing of a 10-year contract between the U.S. containership company and the ruler of Dubai, Rashid bin Said A1 Maktoum, providing that Sea- Land will provide certain technical services to the newly created port authority.
Mr. Scott will be responsible for Jebel Ali's containerized, breakbulk and liquefied petroleum gas terminals, as well as the operation of the port's tanker berths and other specialized waterfront facilities. A major aim of the authority will be the development of industry in the port district. Mr. Scott was previously managing director of the Jacksonville (Fla.) Port Authority, and previous to that was engineering director for the South Carolina State Ports Authority.
In his new post, Mr. Scott will report directly to Bernard E. Czachowski, Sea-Land's executive vice president-affiliated services, a branch of the company administering all activities not directly involved with containership operations.
