Etihad Rail is very much aware of the multiple options to develop the land and property surrounding the rail network to provide additional and necessary business solutions for both customers and third parties.
Whether track-side within the operational corridors, the hinterland of ports and logistics hubs, main-line stations, marshalling yards or terminals, Etihad Rail’s property development arm reviews all property opportunities, but will initially focus on developing warehousing, storage facilities, industrial processing facilities, labour accommodation, commercial offices and retail space, with the aim of developing hubs of economic activity for customers and businesses at strategic locations along the various transportation corridors. These include micro-economies set up by SMEs and trading establishments to service Etihad Rail facilities.
Etihad Rail can provide value-added support services throughout the various phases of the shipping process. Whether shipping consumer goods or aggregates, break bulk or perishables, Etihad Rail’s team of experts can organise the safe and efficient handling of your freight, in transit or loading and offloading at terminals or logistics hubs. Their team of specialists can also work with you to develop distribution centres for your aggregates, bulk commodities and intermodal containers to help facilitate efficient access for contractors.
Etihad Rail offers multiple premium and unique advertising opportunities to promote your brand, such as on our rolling stock, unipoles, billboards and mupies throughout the rail corridors, in-terminal advertising, and even advertising within passenger carriages. Advertisers can communicate effectively, increase audience reach and enhance their visibility to target audiences using an array of sizes and formats.
At a conservative estimate, passenger trains are expected to carry up to 16 million passengers per year once the rail network is fully operational.
