CONNECTED TO THE MARITIME GATEWAY OF ABU DHABI

KIZAD is intrinsically linked to Khalifa Port; one of the world’s most advanced deep-sea ports and the region’s first semi-automated port.

The port is capable of handling mega vessels ensuring easy import of bulk raw materials and export of finished goods. Having Khalifa Port at the doorstep of your business – served by all major shipping lines directly connected to multiple ports – enables the convenient domestic and international shipment of products to and from Abu Dhabi to anywhere in the world.

Following continual expansion to build capabilities and capacity the port is truly multi-purpose, providing services across general cargo, ro-ro and container.

Additionally with the concession agreement AD Ports Group signed with CMA CGM in 2021, Khalifa Port is one of only a few major ports in the world providing hubs for three of the world’s top shipping lines (the others being COSCO SHIPPING Ports Limited and MSC Shipping).

The integrated services of Khalifa Port and KIZAD deliver long-term competitive commercial advantages, including exceptional supply chain efficiencies.

MULTI-POINT ACCESS BY AIR

KIZAD facilitates easy access to four international airports, namely: Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai International Airport and Al Ain International Airport.

Each of these airports is fully equipped to manage air cargo and offer an alternative transportation solution for shipments. In terms of proximity, Abu Dhabi International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai are both within 30 minutes by road from KIZAD.

WORLD-CLASS ROAD CONNECTIVITY

KIZAD is directly connected by road to the markets in the UAE and the wider Middle East. The Industrial Zone and Khalifa Port enable easy access to the UAE’s excellent highway network.

The Industrial Zone is connected to the world through roads of international standard, including dual four-lane highways and dual three-lane arterial roads to enable efficient movement of goods and traffic within the Zone and across the UAE and the wider region. KIZAD is well connected via highways such as E11 and E311, linking it to the GCC, with access to all major cities in the wider region.

UPCOMING DEDICATED RAIL NETWORK

Transporting shipments by rail will be possible with the completion of Etihad Rail in the near future. The Etihad Rail network is a modern rail network designed to connect the UAE with the rest of the GCC from dedicated terminals.

Khalifa Port and KIZAD has the infrastructure in place to facilitate bulk shipment capabilities once the Etihad Rail project is complete.

KIZAD also presents the option of dedicated rail links and marshalling yards. Union Railway – the UAE component of a planned Pan-Arabian rail network offers the opportunity to integrate rail freight facilities into the operating plan of customers’ plants. KIZAD includes these bulk handling capabilities into the Zone’s infrastructure.
