Soft launch planned for Al Bayader warehouse
Al Bayader International, a regional player in the fast growing disposable products market, has expanded its operations with a 15,000 square metre warehouse in Jebel Ali Free Zone.
The AED15 million facility, which includes storage space, loading and off-loading areas, parking and a logistics management centre, is located in the south of the free zone. A soft opening is scheduled for the end of this month.
"Our rapid growth from a supplier of foodstuff packaging into a provider of innovative packaging solutions, and a catalogue comprising in excess of 1200 products, has put extreme pressure on our existing 12,000 square metre warehousing and distribution centres across the UAE," said Nidal Haddad, CEO of Al Bayader International.
"The additional capacity provided by the new Jebel Ali facility will allow us to further improve logistics operations, reduce export costs, and ensure better service to our regional branches within GCC countries," he added.
The facility is also expected to improve access for the company to several additional export destinations. "Exports have been an integral part of our business from day one," said Haddad. "Our branches in Oman and Qatar have provided the springboard into the GCC and now we are looking to serve many other countries in the Middle East, North Africa, East Africa and Eastern Europe from Jebel Ali."
