Danzas leases Bahrain Free Zone warehouse
Danzas AEI Intercontinental has become the first tenant to lease warehousing space at Bahrain Logistics Zone.
The company, which is the Bahraini operating arm of DHL Global Forwarding, will provide a range of logistics services from the facility in Khalifa bin Salman Port, including multimodal transportation, warehousing and distribution, project forwarding and customs clearance.
"Danzas has always seen Bahrain as an important part of its international operations and is proud to support the emergence of Bahrain as a logistics hub in the Gulf," said Enver Moretti, president of DHL Global Forwarding in Europe and the Middle East.
Bahrain Logistics Zone has been designed as a modern seaport with a capacity of 1.5 million TEUs and worldclass customs processes to facilitate the transportation of cargo throughout Bahrain and surrounding areas.
"The memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Danzas demonstrates the magnitude of the project," said Sheikh Daij bin Salman Al-Khalifa, chairman of the General Organisation of Sea Ports in Bahrain, on behalf of Bahrain Logistics Zone. "This is only the beginning for the project, which will open its gates in September. We are looking forward to announcing many more partnerships in the coming months."
