Ras Al Khor Industrial Area (Arabic: رأس الخور الصناعية‎) is a locality in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Literally meaning Cape of the Creek, Ras Al Khor is part of several industrial areas (such as Al Aweer) located in the suburban areas of Dubai. The Ras Al Khor Industrial Area comprises three sub-localities:

  • Ras Al Khor Industrial Area 1
  • Ras Al Khor Industrial Area 2
  • Ras Al Khor Industrial Area 3

The industrial area is home to many construction companies' warehouse facilities. A collective labour accommodation for the many construction workers is being built in this area, in addition to similar accommodations in Muhaisnah and Al Quoz. Ras Al Khor Industrial Area is also home to Dubai Municipality's used car trading complex.[2]
