Abu Dhabi Ports and Al Mazroui International Cargo Company (MICCO) have entered into an agreement to establish a new Logistics Business Centre at Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad). The facility will provide temperature controlled storage facilities, bulk storage through open yards, distribution services, and a service centre for their trucking fleet.
The new logistics centre, on a 30,000m2 plot, will be built in three phases. The first will see MICCO, a leading freight contracting company in the UAE and one of the oldest logistics service providers in Abu Dhabi, invest an initial AED 35 million. The initial phase is expected to be ready by the end of 2016.
“Abu Dhabi Ports has enjoyed a long-standing business partnership with MICCO, going back to the start of operations at Zayed Port,” said Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, chief executive of Abu Dhabi Port.
“This new agreement with MICCO marks our continued efforts in supporting their business.” MICCO’s major clients include ADNOC, Takreer, GASCO, ADCO, NPCC, Borouge, Al Hosn Gas Development, ADGAS and ADMA-OPCO and several other large semi-government and privately-owned industrial enterprises.
