Our Achievements

AD Ports Group has emerged as a key player in the global ports, trade and logistics sectors, being recognised by trade and government entities for its quality and innovation through a number of awards and certifications.

We are particularly proud of our most recent accolade: Abu Dhabi Award for Excellence in Government Performance, a prestigious UAE government award which we have received for three consecutive years.

We have garnered over 40 national and international awards and 31 third-party certifications for our unwavering commitment to sustainability, whilst maintaining high ethical standards across all our subsidiaries.

Through benchmarking ourselves against the best in class, we have welcomed industry acknowledgement, winning Lloyd’s List Best Port Operator award three years in a row and winning the international Seatrade and Maritime Standard award repeatedly.

Success Beyond Borders

Meanwhile, some of our key third-party certifications include ISO9001 (2015), ISO10002 (2014), OHSAS18001 (2007) and ISO14001 (2004) showcasing our dedication to quality practices.

We have also gained recognition from leading trade journals, such as the International Bulk Journal (IBJ) who awarded Maqta Gateway the Special Achievements Award (2016), along with Seatrade Maritime who awarded AD Ports Group the Port Authority Award (2016) and the Regional Cruise Development Award (2015) for our contribution to the maritime industry.

Below are some of our recently claimed honors and awards.
