GAC to set up operations at Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi


GAC is expanding its operations in the Middle East opening a warehouse and open yard at Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD). The industrial zone is the largest in the region and is a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports. Expected to be fully operational by January next year, the facility will serve a range of sectors including oil and gas, manufacturing, construction, FMCG, household effects, and specialist equipment.

The rapid development of KIZAD, and it’s recently launched KIZAD Logistics City, has attracted major logistics and shipping companies. The hub is situated next to Khalifa Port, close to major UAE airports and has road connections to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and into Saudi Arabia making it an attractive location for companies in the region.

Launching new free zone warehouses and Light Industrial Units (LIUs), KIZAD has expanded its offering. The free zone warehouses will appeal to trading and export companies, Third Party Logistics, freight forwarders and distributors, whilst the LIU’s will cater for light manufacturing businesses and workshops.

GAC Abu Dhabi’s Managing Director, Göran Eriksson, commented: “Khalifa Port is an essential gateway to Abu Dhabi. Setting up operations at KIZAD gives us the advantage of being close to the state-of-the-art port, enabling greater operational efficiency for both GAC and our customers.”
