Abu Dhabi’s emergence as a major oil producer and exporter was the impetus that propelled MICCO into existence. The region’s rapid development – both in industrial and service-oriented business enterprises – meant that it required logistics services to further enhance the pace of growth in other sectors of its economy.
MICCO, which today is part of Abu Dhabi Ports, commenced operations in 1978 as a freight forwarder serving the oil and gas industries. We steadily expanded into new areas, overcoming challenges with proven success. As the UAE continued with its expansion in large-scale projects, shipping became an integral part of the country’s supply chain. It became increasingly evident that we needed to position ourselves in a way that would contribute to this rapid development. Upstream and downstream projects began to take shape, and by keeping ourselves abreast of all possibilities we ensured that we became a market leader. Today, we are proud to have handled more than 80% of Abu Dhabi’s total oil, gas, and petrochemical projects.
We have always focused on positioning ourselves as a leader in the fields of freight management, travel services, and specialised supply chain activities that cater to polymers, oil and gas equipment, FMCG, and more.
Automation, highly qualified human resources, and technology that advances our vision have all been our ‘North Stars’ at one stage or another. Today, we’re a vertically integrated logistics provider with services that crisscross various industrial sectors in the UAE and beyond. Our philosophy continues to embrace the idea of pursuing excellence by adapting to changing business dynamics that demand constant innovation. Guided and inspired by our founders’ vision, MICCO continues to rise to every opportunity and occasion. It, therefore, comes as no surprise when we say that a passion for succeeding still drives us. We recently became a member of the Abu Dhabi Ports’ family. By combining our experience and assets with Abu Dhabi Ports’ strategic capabilities and role as a global trade enabler, we are in a position to provide our customers with broader, fully-integrated logistics solutions, and commence the next chapter of MICCO’s growth and development.
MICCO’s transformation and the journey that preceded it are both embodiments of our mission to be the best. Today, as a member of the Abu Dhabi Ports’ family, I am proud to say that MICCO is crossing pre-defined boundaries as our business grows into new ventures, on the threshold of more accolades. The hallmark of our success can be attributed to our forward-thinking visionaries, the hard work and passion of our employees, and our mission to adapt to businesses’ and markets’ ever-changing trends, including the integration of digital technology and the acknowledgment of highly efficient automation.
Group training, exploring, and implementing world-class health and safety standards – along with understanding the importance of environmental awareness – have all been key to taking our clients’ businesses to new levels of acceptance and success. A big part of our commitment and perseverance has included being part of mainstream business enterprises that are keen on maintaining high standards and not compromising on service excellence at any cost.
