EPS opens Dubai Logistics City headquarters
Ehrhardt + Partner Solution (EPS) welcomed around 100 guests for the opening ceremony of its regional headquarters at Dubai Logistics City (DLC) this month, with visitors arriving from Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.
The event included a keynote speech by said Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation, who stressed the importance of companies such as EPS establishing their presence at Dubai Logistics City.
“The opening of this EPS facility marks a strong endorsement of DLC and its business model in providing a dedicated world-class infrastructure for global logistics providers,” said Al Zaffin. “We believe Dubai Logistics City is an unparalleled platform within the Middle East region, and this has been validated by the growing presence of international logistics and support service providers in the local campus. In this regard, the opening of this technology centre marks another successful step in the rapid ongoing development of DLC as the region’s premier logistics destination.”
The Middle East headquarters has been modelled along the same lines as Ehrhardt + Partner Solution’s own Institute for Applied Warehouse in Germany, allowing the company to share its logistics expertise and technological platforms with regional corporates, including logistics service providers.
“Dubai Logistics City is where the most important logistics markets of the future will be centred,” stated Ramon Thoms, regional manager of EPS. “As a result, we thought it was essential to develop such a centre to provide new warehouse solutions that will shape the future of the industry. With this opening, we are now able to implement complex warehouse projects and modernisations on-site in accordance with international quality standards.”
