Kuehne+Nagel (K+N) has started work on a new e-commerce centre located close to Dubai World Central (DXB) Airport.

The new facility will provide fulfilment and distribution services and is located in dedicated e-commerce area EZDubai, which offers exemption from customs clearance procedures within bonded logistics corridors.

It will offer 23,000 sq m of warehousing equating to around 45,000 pallet positions when it opens in the second quarter of 2025.

“With the development of this new e-commerce fulfilment centre, Kuehne+Nagel continues to show commitment to the UAE and Dubai, supporting one of the fastest growing economies globally,” said Lee I’Ons, Gulf Co-operation Council cluster managing director at K+N.

“The new facility brings our customers ‘ease of doing business’ in Dubai and across the region.”

Mohsen Ahmad, chief executive of the logistics district, Dubai South, added: “We are pleased to witness the groundbreaking of Kuehne+Nagel’s new facility, which will be of great added value to the logistics sector.

“We are committed to reinforcing the company’s expansion and growth, via our advanced services and solutions, and to contribute to Dubai’s position as a global logistics hub.”

The new facility is the forwarder’s second project announced in Dubai over the last year.

In December, the company announced it would operate social enterprise IDA Foundation’s healthcare hub for the Middle East and Africa region, located in Dubai.

The new IDA Foundation hub is located at the K+N facility at Dubai South and will serve as a centralised kitting and global health logistics centre for the region and beyond.
