Abu Dhabi Customs to be allocated area at Kizad for speedier processing and enhancement of movement of goods
Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) and Abu Dhabi Customs have signed a strategic partnership to simplify procedures at Khalifa Port and Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad).
Abu Dhabi customs will inform its entire ports staff about the signing of the new agreement, that it is effective immediately and to extend all necessary support to ADPC and Kizad’s operations.
The agreement will also lay the foundation for future operations for the import and export of goods and movement of final products in and out of Khalifa Port and Kizad, a-wholly owned subsidiary of ADPC, as well as across the UAE.
As part of the partnership agreement, a plot of land has been allocated for a permanent documentation service center in Kizad, close to Khalifa Port. The new center will offer customers a dedicated resource for efficient and quicker processing of all import/export paperwork.
“ADPC has a long history of working with Abu Dhabi customs, the relationship has proved successful in every respect, with both organisations understanding the importance of working together, hand in hand, to facilitate trade to and from the emirate of Abu Dhabi,” said ADPC CEO and managing director Khaled Salmeen.
“By working together to promote the smooth movement of goods, we are delivering on what we promised our investors in terms of the ‘ease of doing business’ element that comes with being located in Kizad.”
