The UAE’s AD Ports Group has signed a MoU with Jordan’s Aqaba Development Corporation to set up a cruise terminal at Marsa Zayed in Aqaba.

The first cruise facility, which will serve as a gateway in the Port of Aqaba will be the first facility to be developed by AD Ports Group in Jordan and its outside of the United Arab Emirates, the UAE-based logistics and trade facilitator said in a statement on Sunday.  

Another head of terms agreement was also signed under which AD Ports Group, through its digital arm, Maqta Gateway, will implement an advanced ports community system (PCS), an electronic platform which connects the multiple systems operated by multiple organisations.

The PCS will oversee communication between Aqaba ports and terminals operators, Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA), Aqaba Development Corporation, Jordan Maritime Commission, customs, support services and on-land connections for the Port of Aqaba,
