Quantum Growth Goals

Diversification is the main catalyst driving our company forward, a strategy that has underpinned our ambitious expansion plans.

Beyond its extensive port and logistics operations, Abu Dhabi Ports has invested heavily in industrial and free zones, marine and cruise services, Port Community Systems as well as preparing next generation mariners to join the industry through its Maritime Training Academy.

Our strategic location makes it ideal for our diversification plans into international markets, promising huge business potential for markets including Europe, India, China and Africa.

With innovation as part of our corporate DNA, coupled with the demand for quantum growth, Abu Dhabi Ports acts as a beacon for maritime trade between the UAE and global trade partners.

Sustainable Development

We follow an integrated long-term attention to environmental, social and economic progress. While commercial success is a key sustainability metric, the impact on the environment and the contribution to the communities in which we operate also matter to us.

Thus, we believe in taking the holistic approach in decision-making and assessing our achievements.
