The Abu Dhabi Terminals (Arabic: شركة مرافئ أبوظبى‎) or ADT was established in May, 2006, as the Port Operator for all the commercial Ports in Abu Dhabi. ADT was formed as part of the restructuring of the commercial ports sector in the Emirate, as the manager and operates of Abu Dhabi’s 3 main ports, including Khalifa Port Container Terminal, the region’s first semi-automated and most technologically advanced terminal, which was officially inaugurated on December 12, 2012. The port operator’s other facilities formally included, until 2014, Zayed Port, a historical port that has served the capital for over 40 years and Musaffah Port, located in the heart of the industrial area.
