Abu Dhabi Ports receives 1st Morgan container

(Abu Dhabi) – Abu Dhabi Ports today announced the arrival of the first container of Morgan Advanced Materials (Morgan), a world leader in advanced materials, at Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad).
Abu Dhabi Ports ensured timely handling of the first shipment, which contained critical equipment for Morgan’s dedicated 37,000 square meter advanced materials facility in Kizad’s Free Zone, to support the company’s production activities. As the first container to a Free Zone company to be processed through Abu Dhabi Customs, several clearance procedures were put into practice for the first time.
Commenting on the arrival of the shipment, Mr. Mana Mohammed Saeed Al Mulla, Kizad Chief Executive Officer, said: “The arrival of this shipment was an opportunity for us to showcase our success in managing the supply chain leading into our industrial free zone, which relies heavily on state-of-the-art IT systems and operational procedures.”
“We are pleased to announce that our commitment to being well-prepared has paid off, and that this shipment was processed with exceptional efficiency,” Al Mulla added.
The milestone underscores the streamlined, interconnected nature of the supply chain leading to and from Kizad’s Free Zone.
Ian Robb, President of Morgan Advanced Materials’ Thermal Products Division, said: “Kizad is truly world-class, with well-considered plot layouts, roads and facilities. Most important, though, is the exceptional service we received from both Kizad and the authorities involved in processing this shipment.”
Morgan has a presence in the region since 2001, and in 2014 it selected Kizad for its first dedicated facility in the Middle East in part due to its proximity to Khalifa Port, which provides direct shipping links to more than 50 destination ports globally.
