Dubai South looks to connect logistics tech providers with clients at GITEX
Dubai South’s Business Park is the ideal location for logistics technology solutions providers to set-up their regional operations, according to Shoaib Al Rahimi, vice president, Business Park at Dubai South.
“Dubai South is a logistics hub with seamless connectivity to, of course, the Al Maktoum Airport for air freight, but also Jebel Ali Port for ocean freight,” says Al Rahimi. “But, it is also a business and commercial hub.”
“A growing number of companies are seeking business solutions that address their needs, especially in areas of e-commerce and logistics, and we’re perfectly placed to address this, we understand the demands of the new generation of businesses driven by technology,” he adds.
So in its logistics park, and in particular in the new EZDubai, the region’s first dedicated e-commerce logistics hub, a growing number of online retailers and tech-focused logistics companies are setting up shop. These logistics companies provide logistics solutions to the e-com platforms, and Al Rahimi says that both need new technology solutions.
“GITEX is the perfect platform for us because it gives us access to the leading tech companies in the region that are looking to connect with the kinds of retailers and logistics players that we have operating in Dubai South and EZDubai,” he says. “And by setting up their operations in the adjacent Business Park they can leverage that demand to their advantage.”
