Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has launched a new innovative port community system project called Maqta Gateway, a system that will serve the community by interlinking all of the relevant parties involved in Abu Dhabi’s growing import and export trade business.
Maqta Gateway will offer ports, exporters, importers, shipping lines, customs and government agencies a single point of contact and real time information at any time of the day – even via mobile, enhancing processing times and communication procedures.
The system will ensure smooth transport and logistics operations involving Abu Dhabi ports, airports and railway networks. It will feed into wider global supply chain communication platforms and act as an accelerator for development and trade in the Emirate, a core objective for ADPC and a central pillar of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.
“Maqta Gateway will help facilitate the next generation of trade in Abu Dhabi and will dramatically transform the Emirate’s way of doing business. It will make import and export activities more efficient, transparent and thus more time and cost effective while guaranteeing optimum supply chain efficiency”, said Capt. Mohammed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO, ADPC.
Maqta Gateway takes its name from the Maqta Bridge which was the first crossing to communicate Abu Dhabi island with the mainland.
