We Are Khalifa Port

Khalifa Port celebrates its 8th anniversary growing from strength to strength.

Our operations and services at Khalifa Port have continued to be driven forward by evolving customer demands, that have pushed us to not only be ambitious but to also venture into new territory. Diversifying our service capabilities and expanding port capacity ensures that we are well-placed to meet future growth trends in the emirate, the nation, and beyond.

Our recent rise on the 2020 edition of Lloyd’s List One Hundred Ports to become the fastest-growing container port is a testament to this, as well as our achievement in securing ‘Port of the Year’ at The Maritime Standard Awards 2020 for the fourth year running.
