ZonesCorp and Abu Dhabi Terminals hold workshop, informing investors of Khalifa Port Container Terminal

25/03/2013

Abu Dhabi, March 24, 2013: Abu Dhabi’s Higher Corporation of Spezialized Economic Zones (ZonesCorp) and Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) recently joined forces to host a workshop for ZonesCorp’s investors. The workshop ensured the companies in ZonesCorp’s ICAD zones are fully informed about the opportunities  and services presented by ADT’s Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT) that was inaugurated by HH Sheikh Khalifa, President of the UAE, on 12th December 2012.

 

During the workshop, speakers explained KPCT’s world-class infrastructure and multimodal connectivity to the network of roads, rail, airports and seaports that will ensure optimal accessibility to and from the port and industrial zones. KPCT is already linked directly with more than 60 key ports in the Far East, Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, Africa and Europe, and the number of directly connected ports continues to grow.

 

The KPCT development helps Abu Dhabi’s businesses compete as the value proposition is improved through faster and more efficient distribution channels -  a perfect match with ZonesCorp’s commitment to provide its investors with the best services and finest facilities to further develop their businesses locally and globally.

 

Commenting on the Workshop, HE Mohamed Hasan Al Qamzi, CEO of ZonesCorp, said: “We are very pleased to have established this partnership with Abu Dhabi Terminals for what it brings of benefits to our investors in the UAE and Abu Dhabi specifically. This partnership will help our investors reach out globally to other investors and customers and to expand their businesses successfully in an efficient and cost effective manner.”

 

Martijn Van De Linde, CEO of Abu Dhabi Terminals concluded:

“ADT and ZonesCorp both have the same goal. We want to develop the best possible infrastructure so local businesses can succeed in the global market place. The joint initiative to link the businesses of ZonesCorp’s investors in the ICAD zones with Abu Dhabi’s new logistics hub is testament to the concerted efforts to make a difference. We thank ZonesCorp and their investors for actively pursuing this initiative.”
