What is the Dubai Logistics Corridor
Jafza is not only ideally situated for access to local markets, but it also boasts a logistics platform that connects your business to the East and West due to its close proximity with Jebel Ali Port and Al Maktoum International Airport. A single customs bonded area connects all these channels, meaning reduced cargo times and costs.
The Dubai Logistics Corridor
Dubai Logistics Corridor, which links sea, land and air, is spread out over an area of approximately 200 square kilometres. The corridor bridges Jebel Ali Port, the largest man-made port in the world; Jebel Ali Free Zone, host to more than 8700 companies; and Al Maktoum International Airport, which upon completion, will be the world’s largest airport in both size and volume.
The Corridor reduces sea-air transfer time to less than one hour from four hours. This, in real terms, means a quadrupling of Dubai’s logistics efficiency and its capability to move goods across the region.
Bringing together for the first time in the Middle East all of the components needed to create a truly multimodal logistics platform, underscores Dubai’s long-term commitment to facilitating the growth and development of regional and global commerce. It improves the flow of sea-to-air cargo by eliminating the processes of exit and entry from one zone to another.
- Connecting by SEA
Jebel Ali Port, the fastest growing port with the best global ocean freight connectivity. 150 shipping lines with a capacity to handle 19 million containers annually.
- Connecting by AIR
Customs bonded with Al Maktoum International Airport heading towards being the largest cargo airport in the world. Minutes from Dubai International Airport, the world’s top 10 busiest cargo airport handling 2.7 million metric tons a year.
- Connecting by LAND
The region’s extensive highway network enables goods to flow smoothly to regional markets and beyond within days.
- Connecting by RAIL
The impending Etihad rail (Union Rail) links Jafza to the entire Arabian Peninsula, making Jafza ideally placed to take full advantage of the new rail connections.
