On behalf of all of us at Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), I would like to welcome you to our new website.
Whether you are an existing customer, or just interested to learn more about ADT, this is our platform to share with you all that you would like to know about our organisation; from our diversified range of port services and our partners, to our management team and future ambitions.
ADT is the operator of the first semi-automated and most technologically advanced terminal in the Middle East, Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT), and our team is demonstrating its commitment to servicing the shipping and port industry at the highest levels using the smartest tools and solutions. Commercial operations at KPCT commenced on September 1st 2012, and with the project phase having reached fruition, ADT is now able to transition container traffic currently destined for the existing facility at Mina Zayed to KPCT.
Attracting direct main line calls to KPCT provides benefits to everyone. It will lower the total cost of logistics for importers and exporters; improve speed and access to overseas markets for our customers; offer shipping lines the opportunity to increase market share in one of the fastest growing markets in the region, and at the same time will generate a multitude of spin-off businesses. We believe that KPCT’s ability to create long term capacity for the container business will not only benefit the economies of Abu Dhabi and the UAE alike, but also allow ADT to service other countries in the region.
There are a number of people responsible for making these goals a reality and I would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude. Our thanks go to our customers for their ever increasing support; our shareholders for their confidence and resources, and to our dedicated employees for their hard work and unwavering commitment.
We trust that you will find this site informative and useful and firmly believe that in order for ADT to continue to have a website that provides both guidance and value, we need users to provide us with feedback regarding how we can better communicate with you and your organisation. We encourage you to send your suggestions and enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact Us page on our website to share your thoughts about how we can improve your experience with ADT!
