Abu Dhabi Port is the largest and busiest port in the United Arab Emirates. It is located in the city of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. The port is operated by Abu Dhabi Ports Company, a government-owned company. The port handles around 20 million tons of cargo and 2 million containers yearly.

Khalifa Port is the newest and most modern terminal, the only terminal that can handle large container ships. Mina Zayed is the second largest terminal and handles general cargo.
