Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP) has launched new free zone warehouses and light industrial units (LIUs) at the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) responding to the needs of distributors, manufacturers, shippers and logistics companies.
Located within Kizad Logistics City, and adjacent to Khalifa Port, the new free zone warehouses will cater to trading and export companies, third-party logistics, freight forwarders and distributors while the pre-built and flexible LIUs will serve various light manufacturing businesses and workshops.
Due to be completed in October, the modular units are available for pre-booking with early bird incentives and competitive prices.
Spanning 17,000 sq m, Kizad’s free zone warehouses offer flexible sizes from 380 to 761 sq m, high power capacity for air-conditioning and cold storage with cost efficient utilities rates. Built to high standards, the warehouses come with mezzanine offices, seven metre height to eaves, integrated fire and safety features, a dedicated loading area for each unit and raised floors for ease of loading.
The LIUs encompassing a total of 31,000 sq m come with ample power capacity for industrial activities, competitive utilities rates, six metres height to eaves, and fire alarm and sprinkler systems. Flexible modular unit sizes start from 320 to 1,148 sq m and can be combined for larger requirements.
Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Abu Dhabi Ports CEO, said: “Primed to become one of the leading warehousing centres in the region, Kizad Logistics City and its range of product offerings are fast responding to the needs of the logistics and manufacturing sector. The ongoing investment into Kizad, Khalifa Port Free Trade Zone and Khalifa Port has been instrumental in the rising market demand for services within our integrated logistics hub and greater opportunities for growth.”
“Ideally situated adjacent to Khalifa Port and major UAE highways, our diverse and flexible warehouses are perfectly positioned to serve the GCC and beyond. The new LIUs and free zone warehouses serve to enhance Kizad Logistics City’s value proposition and will fuel growth across local and regional markets by offering the lowest utility costs and ease of doing business for investors establishing a presence in the UAE,” Captain Al Shamisi stated.
