New UAE base for DHL

LOGISTICS giant DHL has unveiled its largest express ground operations facility in the Middle East and North Africa – at a prime location just minutes from the heart of Dubai.
Along with local partner Middle East General Enterprise (MGE), the new facility is a US$27m investment and will “enhance DHL’s competitive logistical performance due to its strategic location, state-of-the-art features and capabilities and best-in-class handling processes all within one new modern facility”, says a statement.
Frank-Uwe Ungerer, DHL’s country manager in the region, states: “This is a logistics milestone in DHL’s Middle East and North Africa network.
“As the region’s economy goes from strength to strength, this new facility marks not only a milestone in the growth of DHL, but also of the UAE’s economy,” he adds.
DHL began operations in the UAE in 1976, and its growth has mirrored that of the UAE.
The facility includes a 78,285-sq ft indoor sorting and loading area and a 46,648-sq ft office, which will serve as DHL’s new head-office for the region, and comes complete with the latest automated handling equipment and communications technology systems designed to reduce transit times.
