The rise of the e-commerce industry has fueled the growth of logistics, given the large number of e-commerce companies that prefer third-party logistics (3PL) service providers for more cost-effective and streamlined supply chain management.
With a global supply chain network that offers state-of-the-art air and maritime transport solutions and a well-equipped in-land network, the UAE has established itself as a logistics leader in the MEASA region. The constant attendance to free zones and their demands in addition to the continuous efforts to eliminate bureaucracy have equally contributed to the resilience of the country’s logistics and supply chain.
Despite the many challenges it’s going through, the UAE scored 71.7 of 100 in logistic risk, which placed it third across the MENA region and 37th globally. The country’s cross-border plans to address logistic challenges and offer businesses and investors a network with world-class facilities and affordable business solutions are still the reason why the UAE stays in the lead, strongly and continuously meeting the global logistical demands.
