SIIP (Saja’a Industrial Investment Park)

The creation of Saja’a Industrial Investment Park (SIIP), a 750,000-square-meter site located in Al Saja’a, Sharjah, is a continued effort to developing logistic cities throughout the Middle East. The international logistics centre will be Momentum’s flagship project and will house warehouses, distribution centres, a transportation park, a container freight station, a container repair workshop, offices, personnel accommodation blocks, a mosque, and a food court. Ideally positioned to connect to all three of Sharjah’s seaports, airports and free zones, SIIP is expected to become the focal point to unite road and rail modes of transport linking with Momentum’s parent company, Gulftainer’s terminal operations, creating a truly integrated multimodal logistics facility.
