Located at the crossroads of East and West, the UAE is at the intersection of trade routes between Asia, Africa, and Europe. Leveraging this position and with the intent to deepen global connectivity, Abu Dhabi has facilitated trade and integration through a network of robust ports and infrastructure, a world-class aviation industry, and a rapidly developing rail network that will catalyze the future mobility of people.
Bringing together a portfolio of assets across the entire logistics value chain, ADQ is spearheading the strategy to grow Abu Dhabi’s global connectivity and capitalize on opportunities to enable trade and commerce.
In doing so, we are building globally competitive assets across all modes of transport with integrated capabilities that strengthen supply chain resilience and the UAE’s development into an industrial services powerhouse.

It has a proprietary, custom-built digital system that employs blockchain technology to track and trace cargo at every step of the journey from sourcing, storage, shipment, and all related data in real-time.
Through our portfolio company, Etihad Rail, our nation will benefit from a state-of-the-art and sustainable national railway network, transforming the industrial landscape and fast-tracking economic growth across the UAE.
Its 1,200-kilometer network will extend across the UAE, from the border of Saudi Arabia to the border of Oman. Importantly, it brings a new mode of transport that will ensure economic security for the GCC and enable the cost-effective movement of people and goods across the region.
