Established in 1972, Zayed Port is the
oldest commercial port in the Emirate
of Abu Dhabi, serving as the main city
port for over 40 years.
Since transferring all container traffic to Khalifa Port, Zayed Port has expanded its status as a premier regional hub to encompass cruise tourism, as well as general and bulk cargo.
Located in the industrial town of
Musaffah, south west of the city of Abu
Dhabi, Musaffah Port is the second
oldest port after Zayed Port.
The 53-km long Musaffah Channel is the 2nd longest in the region after the Suez Canal.
Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port ranks amongst
the most modern, technologically
advanced ports in the region, and was
recognised in 2016 as the second
fastest growing port in the world.
Inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the USE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi on 12 December, 2012, Khalifa Port is a true representation of the UAE’s engineering prowess.
