  • Remotely programmed gantry cranes and digitized container stacking
  • Providing business intelligence and customer support
  • IT communications and rack hosting services
Seamless & Integrated Solutions

Our Port Community System (PCS) is an avant-garde digital platform solution that acts as a single window provider facilitating information flow between all stakeholders, port authorities and traders. The system is the first-of-its-kind in the UAE and was fully developed by Maqta Gateway, a wholly owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports.

Our Maqta PCS is integrated with different government and private entities, in addition to 11 shipping agencies and 20 international shipping lines.

We serve 100% of the shipping agents in Abu Dhabi, including importers and exporters who use the system.

Technology on the Move

Smart services are offered through our recently launched ‘Al Manara’ Mobile Application. Designed for registered users on our PCS, it allows for real-time updates of the status of their shipments as they reach their destination, as well as tracking transactions with more than five integrated entities.

Our new mobile application “Masaha”, allows customers to access information and services provided by our logistics and industrial hub, KIZAD.
