New free zone area at RAK Port
Ras Al Khaimah Port has established a new free zone area that comes under the licence jurisdiction of RAK Maritime City Freezone Authority. As a result new options for supply chain management, storage and manufacturing in the emirate are now available in the centre city port location, delivering a range of logistical and business advantages. Captain Clifford Brand, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Ports, said: “We believe that introducing a free zone alternative within RAK Port will prove popular with tenants looking for a location that is within the city and also directly connected to the port facility itself.” Justin Wardle, RAK Port’s Operations Director, confirmed that the existing services that the port provides will also continue. These include marine layby, afloat repair, logistics, import & export, crew and vessel services, warehousing, cold store warehousing and open land storage.
