Located on the north eastern shores of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), about 15 kilometers from downtown Sharjah, Hamriyah Port was initially built to handle exports of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) produced at the Sajja Gas Field in the Emirate of Sarjah. It is also a free trade zone where foreign ownership is allowed and there is no income or corporate tax or restrictions on trade. The Port of Hamriyah is one of Sharjah’s three ports that make up the free trade zone. The 14 metre-deep water Hamriyah port is designed to incorporate dedicated petrochemicals, bulk handling and general cargo berths.
