DHL Express set to expand operations to e-commerce hub EZDubai
April 15, 2019: DHL Express has recently announced that it will soon be expanding their UAE operations to its new 3,200 square metre facility located in the state-of-the-art EZDubai, the latest addition to Dubai South’s Logistics District.
DHL’s new Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA)-approved facility facility in EZDubai will handle rising B2C exports in Dubai South, with 13 pick-up and delivery (PUD) routes to be relocated to EZDubai. It will also follow the standard material handling system layout, with conveyable automated throughput of 3,000pph. It also boasts improved stem time, resulting in earlier deliveries of goods and products.
This move will allow DHL Express to serve its existing and new customers who will be based in the newly formed free zone as well as those located outside EZDubai and Dubai South.
Geoff Walsh, UAE Country manager for DHL Express said: “The Middle East logistics and e-commerce market is rapidly growing, primarily driven by the UAE, which is why we are expanding our operations to EZDubai. It aims to attract e-commerce industries, with the right regulatory framework, latest infrastructure and cost-effective warehousing capabilities. With operations at EZDubai, we will be able to connect sellers and consumers around the world with even greater speed and efficiency.”
EZDubai, a 920,000 square-meter purpose-built e-commerce zone, offers a range of logistics facilities and business solutions to multinationals and small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Once fully completed and developed, the AED 2.1-billion project hub will offer six dedicated areas that will help bolster Dubai's position as a strategic hub for e-commerce.
