Khalifa Port reflects on nine years of exponential growth

December is always a significant month for the UAE and particularly in 2021 as we joined in celebrating our nation’s 50th anniversary and with it the opportunity to reflect on the extraordinary achievements and progress made. December is also a significant month for AD Ports Group as it was on the 12th December 2012 that His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, inaugurated Khalifa Port –the first, deep water, semi-automated container port in the GCC.

Equipped with an eight-kilometer-long breakwater – another record for the region – Khalifa Port was designed to cause minimum disruption to local marine life, while providing significant capacity for general cargo, container, RoRo, bulk, break-bulk, and soon liquid and gas storage as well as grain storage and processing. In the same way that National Day highlighted our nation’s ability to keep pace with the high expectations of our national leadership, we reflect on Khalifa Port’s journey and how it has become the fastest-growing port in the world.
