RAK Ports

- RAK Ports operates at four modern hubs across the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

- With 100 million tons annual capacity, Saqr Port/Free Zone is one of the world’s largest bulk handling ports including the region’s only free zone to have direct port access.

- A massive new port expansion project is well underway, utilising quarry waste to create much needed space for continued industrial expansion, further economic diversification, and additional skilled employment.

- Imports and exports through Saqr Port have doubled in the past five years on the back of recent infrastructure investments of over US$250 million.

- Saqr Port/Free Zone was the first port in the world to implement a predictive mooring system, which provides advance information about mooring forces and ship motion in our deep-water berths days ahead of a vessel’s arrival, resulting in safer mooring and faster turnaround times.

- A state-of-the-art dynamic under keel clearance system at RAK Ports calculates tide height, waves, and vessel motions in real-time, so the maximum cargo load can be transported on each vessel, increasing efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions, and lowering shipping costs.

- RAK Ports’ advanced facilities also handle a range of other commodities, including breakbulk, general cargo, and containers, making it the partner of choice for cargo flows in and out of the UAE.

- Al Jazeera Port is a first-class vessel repair facility with wet and dry berths servicing the region’s offshore industry, as well as a range of leisure craft and floating residential projects.

- Khor Port boasts a new boutique cruise terminal close to the city, RAK airport, and luxury hotels and tourism facilities

- Khor Port is also home to free zone warehousing, cold storage, and private engineering facilities, with multiple berths for marine layby.
