Abu Dhabi Ports expands supply chain logistics solutions with acquisition of MICCO

UAE’s Abu Dhabi Ports has announced the acquisition of MICCO Logistics in a move to become a provider of fully integrated supply chain logistics solutions.

With the integration of MICCO as part of Abu Dhabi Ports Logistics, the expanded portfolio aims to open opportunities in underserved market segments and end-to-end logistics solutions.

“The acquisition of MICCO is a critical step in our emirate’s journey to establish itself as a leading hub within the global trade and supply chains,” said Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, group ceo of Abu Dhabi Ports.

“The combined advantage of both organisations means that Abu Dhabi Ports will be able to compete on the regional and global stage as a provider of holistic logistics solutions, enhancing what we offer to both existing and prospective customers, while at the same time furthering our contribution to Abu Dhabi’s non-oil GDP and the government’s diversification efforts.”

The added capacity enables the organisation to manage all customer touch points including sourcing, PO management, international freight handling through project, commercial, and contract logistics, customs clearance, stevedoring, and, storage, order fulfilment and handling solutions via its network of distribution centres.

Robert Sutton, head of Abu Dhabi Ports Logistics Cluster, said: “Our greatly expanded capacity to deliver a wide spectrum of services across the entire supply chain has also opened doors for us to target new opportunities in segments that have been traditionally underserved, including FMCG and healthcare.”

With a modern ground fleet comprised of more than 350 prime movers with diversified fleet of trailers, specialised storage facilities, MICCO operates a diverse portfolio of logistics solutions as well as road feeder services for the aviation segment.
