Abu Dhabi Ports has taken another step in its drive to diversification with the acquisition of MICCO Logistics. The business will be integrated into the Abu Dhabi Ports Logistics division, which aims to provide customers with a comprehensive range of end-to-end logistics solutions.
According to ADP Group CEO, Captain Mohammed Juma Al Shamisi, “Thanks to the combination of MICCO’s international and regional logistics solutions, its large and diversified transportation fleet, and a network of temperature-controlled warehouses, along with the Group’s extensive cargo handling and industrial zone capacity, Abu Dhabi Ports is in a unique position to serve its customers along every segment of the supply chain.”
The acquisition is expected to ensure that Abu Dhabi Ports remains a leading provider of logistics services for the energy sector, while at the same time allowing it to expand to include other strategic sectors, including retail, e-fulfilment, FMCG and pharmaceutical/healthcare.
Founded in 1978, MICCO Logistics is one of the longest established freight forwarders in Abu Dhabi and one of the first businesses to offer consolidated freight services to the emirate’s oil and gas industry.
As the first logistics company to establish its presence in the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), MICCO’s distribution centre includes several temperature-controlled warehousing services that are considered ideally suited for storing sensitive cargo for extended periods.
