ADPC to manage and operate Zayed Port from 2014
ABU DHABI TERMINALS (ADT) TO TRANSFER CONCESSION FOR THE MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS BACK TO ADPC
On 31 December 2013, the concession for the management and operations at Zayed Port will be returned to the port authority, Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC).
The concession is being returned to ADPC in line with the original planning for port capacity for the emirate of Abu Dhabi. This planning was outlined when ADPC was established.
ADT and ADPC have a long established close working partnership and have assembled a dedicated specialist team to manage the handover. That team and all of our employees at Zayed Port will be working to ensure that ‘business continues as normal’ both during the transition period and from 1 January 2014, when ADPC takes over.
All of the current infrastructure, equipment, systems and processes and employees will be transferred to ADPC to ensure a smooth transition. ADT and ADPC’s priority is to ensure smooth and uninterrupted high levels of service for all customers and stakeholders.
ADT has managed the Zayed Port concession since 2006, and moving forward, ADT and ADPC will continue to work closely together as ADT holds the 30 year concession to manage and operate the emirate’s state of the art, flagship Khalifa Port.
