Shipping, logistics and marine services provider GAC is opening a warehouse and open yard in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD).
The new GAC Abu Dhabi facility, expected to be fully operational in early next year, will serve a wide range of sectors including oil and gas, manufacturing, construction, FMCG, household effects, and specialist equipment.
GAC has been in Abu Dhabi since 1967, and today has facilities at Sila, Ruwais, Mussafah, Mina Zayed and Abu Dhabi International Airport.
“GAC has been actively serving ship owners and operators at Khalifa Port for many years. Abu Dhabi is increasingly becoming a major global hub for logistics and shipping, and so it is only natural that a player of GAC’s scale and reputation would be looking to expand its presence in the emirate,” said Samir Chaturvedi, KIZAD CEO.
“By joining the thriving KIZAD community, GAC becomes the latest major enterprise to realise the impact that the strategic location and exceptional infrastructure and support offered by our zone can have on their business.
Goran Eriksson, GAC Abu Dhabi’s managing director, added: “Khalifa Port is an essential gateway to Abu Dhabi. Setting up operations at KIZAD gives us the advantage of being close to the state-of-the-art port, enabling greater operational efficiency for both GAC and our customers.”
The recently-launched KIZAD Logistics City is adjacent to Khalifa Port, one of the fastest growing ports in the world.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
