Khalifa Port

Sustainable Roadmap

Khalifa Port, strategically located halfway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, was officially inaugurated on 12.12.12 by the President of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The deep-water port is the first semi-automated container port in the GCC region.

Construction of the port was carefully planned to keep environmental impact to an absolute minimum.

Khalifa Port’s 8-km long breakwater, the longest in the Middle East, allows the Gulf’s currents to flow freely, while protecting and preserving the local marine ecosystem.

Owned by Abu Dhabi Ports and operated by Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), the port handles general cargo, container, roll-on and roll-off (RoRo) as well as break-bulk activities.
