Top Ports In The UAE
The Emirati government has invested many of its sources and technologies in the infrastructure constructing of its ports. That paid off significantly since the country is now considered a hub for seaports and an attraction for traders. In other words, the development of The UAE’s and Dubai’s ports in the past years has played a great role in the growth and the economic prosperity of the country.
Today we will list the top 5 ports in the UAE:
Located in Dubai, Mina Rashid Port is the city’s first commercial port and is named after Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

The busiest and largest man-made harbor in the world, Port of Jebel Ali, was opened in 1979 to support Mina Rashid which was incapable of handling the growing number of cargo ships.
