Expo 2020 opens logistics warehouse in Dubai South, full operations in Q1 2020
The Expo 2020 logistics department has opened the first of three planned warehouse and logistics hubs in Dubai ahead of the 10-month event starting in October next year.
The warehouse located in Dubai South will be run by Expo and supported by UPS, the official logistics partner.
The Expo 2020 Off-Site Warehouse is 10,364sqm for palletised goods, with an additional 10,000sqm plot of land in front of it for breakbulk cargoes and will be utilised in the lead-up to the Expo, as well as during the event as well for FMCG cargoes and other goods.
The Off-Site facility will be joined next year by a 5,500sqm Expo 2020 On-Site Warehouse that will be used for fast-moving consumer goods and act as a rapid replenishment hub in conjunction with a 30,000sqm underground logistics hub.
