DHL Express to expand in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi Airports Free Zone Authority (ADAFZ) has signed a 27-year agreement with Middle East General Enterprises (MGE) to develop a facility in conjunction with DHL Express.

DHL Express will serve as a key client within ADAFZ’s Express Integrator cluster, and in close collaboration with MGE combined, will invest up to AED365m in a new facility covering 30,000 sq m. The facility will open in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Nour Suliman, chief executive, DHL Express Middle East and North Africa, said: “In line with our long-term objectives the new facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport is our latest investment to support global trade to and from the capital of the UAE.”

“We are confident that the new facility will meet the increasing demand for a faster and more efficient operational process. We will continue to work closely with our key partners and customs authorities to ensure that our customers in the UAE and across the world receive the highest levels of service.” 

ADAFZ said that DHL’s operations at Abu Dhabi International Airport have grown significantly over the years, starting with a facility at the airport’s cargo village, prior to expanding to more than 4,300 sq m in the logistics park, and now to an expansive plot of land with both airside and landside access.
