“We are pleased that duisport can provide its know-how to one of the most important ports in this rapidly developing region,” said Staake at the signing ceremony. This cooperation agreement represents a further important step in our internationalisation strategy, which is being continually developed,” he added.
The Abu Dhabi Ports Company is responsible for all port and logistics activities in Abu Dhabi, ranging from Al Sila in the west on the border with Saudi Arabia, up to Khalifa Port in the east, just 40 km away from Dubai which will start operations next year and is a flagship project in Abu Dhabi. The port constructed in the sea will serve as the gateway to the 417 sq km Kizad Industrial Zone – among the largest in the world.
In addition to developing the infrastructure connections and optimising port management, duisport will examine warehouse operations in detail to achieve higher efficiency. Teams from both sides will start work to make detailed agreements at the beginning of next year.
