Etihad Rail & Al Ghurair Iron & Steel Sign Logistics Pact
Etihad Rail has signed a partnership agreement with Al Ghurair Iron & Steel to use the UAE National Rail Network to transport the steel producer’s product across the nation. Etihad Rail will be providing efficient and sustainable services by transporting steel products from Al Ghurair Iron & Steel’s manufacturing facilities through the rail freight terminal in the Industrial City of Abu Dhabi to Khalifa Port in Abu Dhabi and Jebel Ali in Dubai for exports.
Al Ghurair Iron & Steel Mr Abu Bucker Husain said “We are confident Etihad Rail will provide world class facilities. Our collaboration with the company will immensely boost our continuous endeavour to improve customer satisfaction. Transporting steel coils by rail is both reliable and environmentally friendly, reducing both time and damage caused by road transport. Additionally, rail transport allows for shorter timeframes for import clearance of hot rolled steel coils. With such improvements in our supply chain, galvanised steel coils made in UAE will find a wider customer base.”
Al Ghurair Iron & Steel is a leading manufacturer of high-quality steel sheets and galvanised steel, widely used in the UAE’s construction sector. With Al Ghurair Iron & Steel’s products being exported to over 40 nations, the producer will leverage Etihad Rail’s facilities at ICAD to reduce transportation costs and time.
