Dubai Trade, the ‘smart’ window for cross-border trade and a DP World company, is achieving considerable success as an integrated ‘smart’ online platform that connects supply chain stakeholders over a secure network to ensure ease of doing business with the Emirate.
Dubai Trade has in recent times added “LogiGate” to its portfolio, enabling it to function as a transportation and warehousing marketplace that enables cargo owners to book competitive haulage and storage services using a smart phone.
Through such initiatives, supported by the company’s continued commitment to enabling seamless trade, customer levels are rising and over 14,000 new companies registered with Dubai Trade in 2016, taking the total to over 127,000 now using the portal. The Dubai Trade portal also recorded an impressive 19 million transactions during the year, while doubling the volume of e-payment transactions on its secure ePayment gateway Roscommon, to 2.3 million.
Eng. Mahmood Al Bastaki, Dubai Trade chief executive, said: “Our industry needs more smart platforms to facilitate trade and to promote doing business so we are working on changing the way these are offered. Our capabilities and smart services will also be compatible with other leading international smart platforms and gateways.”
