KIZAD launches new freezone warehouses and light industrial units for start-ups
Responding to the needs of distributors, manufacturers, shippers and logistics companies establishing a foothold in the UAE, Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) has launched new free zone warehouses and Light Industrial Units (LIUs).
Located within KIZAD Logistics City, and adjacent to Khalifa Port, the new free zone warehouses will cater to trading and export companies, Third Party Logistics, freight forwarders and distributors while the pre-built and flexible LIUs will serve various light manufacturing businesses and workshops.
“The new LIUs and free zone warehouses serve to enhance KIZAD Logistics City’s value proposition and will fuel growth across local and regional markets by offering the lowest utility costs and ease of doing business for investors establishing a presence in the UAE,” said Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Abu Dhabi Ports CEO.
The modular units will be completed this coming October and are available for pre-booking with early bird incentives and competitive prices.
Spanning 17,000 square metres, KIZAD’s free zone warehouses offer flexible sizes from 380 to 761 square metres, high power capacity for air-conditioning and cold storage with cost efficient utilities rates.
Built to high standards, the warehouses come with mezzanine offices, seven metre height to eaves, integrated fire and safety features, a dedicated loading area for each unit and raised floors for ease of loading.
The LIUs encompassing a total of 31,000 square metres come with ample power capacity for industrial activities, competitive utilities rates, six metres height to eaves, and fire alarm and sprinkler systems.
Flexible modular unit sizes start from 320 to 1,148 square metres and can be combined for larger requirements.
“Primed to become one of the leading warehousing centres in the region, KIZAD Logistics City and its range of product offerings are fast responding to the needs of the logistics and manufacturing sector,” said Al Shamisi. “Ideally situated adjacent to Khalifa Port and major UAE highways, our diverse and flexible warehouses are perfectly positioned to serve the GCC and beyond.”
In addition to the newly-launched free zone warehouses and LIUs, KIZAD Logistics City’s products also include industrial zone warehouses with a net leasable area of 119,000 square metres.
