RAK’s location on the Strait of Hormuz, its well-developed infrastructure, and the free trade agreements in place within the GCC are some of the key logistical advantages offered to businesses located in the emirate. RAK boasts five ports, each with a clearly defined role, and all of them branded as RAK Ports and managed by the Saqr Port Authority. The 1200-km Etihad Rail Project is being built across the UAE in three stages and will eventually transport both freight and passengers, as well as provide rail links to the proposed GCC network.
This chapter contains an interview with Cliff Brand, General Manager, RAK Ports Group.
