Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, has broken ground as it builds a new range of industrial warehousing units in the KIZAD Logistics Park.
According to a statement, the units comprise the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the KIZAD Logistics Park (KLP) and are set to be introduced to the market starting from the end of 2020 to cater to increasing customer demands for additional ready to move facilities.
KLP’s launch is the latest in a series of recent developments announced by the Middle East’s largest industrial zone. Earlier this month, KIZAD broke ground on a dedicated Truck Plaza, the largest in the region, to meet the needs of truck drivers and the zone’s growing industrial community.
Located in KIZAD Area A, all modules will be equipped with raised floors, open loading yard access for trucks and forklifts, ample on-site parking will include their own office area with toilets and kitchenettes.
Abdullah Al Hameli, Acting Head of Industrial Zones Cluster, Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “Industrial activity and warehousing demand has been quite resilient, and we are confident that launching these ultra-modern units will propel tremendous growth in Abu Dhabi’s manufacturing base.
“Customers are looking for flexible and asset-light options, and we are expanding our portfolio to address these needs through the launching of a new modular, pre-built units in various sizes and configurations.
“With the availability of options to buy or lease warehouses based upon a business’s individual requirements, investors are benefit from our flexible offers for low-cost operations at scale as well as our ability to offer the region’s lowest utility costs.
“This is complemented by the unique location at the industrial heart of the UAE, and its direct access to global markets via our flagship deep-water port, Khalifa Port.”
