New freight station opens at Khalifa port

Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) and Abu Dhabi Ports have announced the opening of a new freight station which will reduce trucking of EGA’s aluminium within Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) by over 290,000 kilometres per year.
The new facility has been built close to EGA’s Al Taweelah site to load metal into containers for transfer onto ships for export, according to the statement issued by the two companies on Tuesday.

Last year EGA shipped some 600,000 tonnes of aluminium from Khalifa Port, requiring over 17,000 truck movements from EGA’s site to the quayside.
