Ajman Free Zone (AFZ) has achieved a remarkable growth rate of 45 % in its e-commerce sector since the beginning of this year, it has announced. The latest results are attributed to the authority’s diverse range of offerings, but primarily its warehouse solutions, which have remained a core focus in AFZ’s operations and are designed to fill critical logistical gaps, making the free zone a reliable logistics, storage, and distribution centre.
Additionally, having a dedicated logistics cluster also benefits e-commerce businesses by providing access to end-to-end warehousing capabilities, AFZ suggests.
Commenting on the announcement, Ali AlSuwaidi, Director General of AFZ, said, “The e-commerce sector has been integral to our success, especially considering its rapid growth in the country. AFZ recognises the importance of having advanced logistics facilities installed in strategic locations for broad outreach and market penetration, to facilitate e-commerce growth. The positive results reflect our strategic approach and guidelines to developing this industry and attracting more businesses with our e-commerce hub, advanced range of offerings, and other value-added services.”
The free zone’s effective partnerships with major entities, such as Ajman Chamber, Ajman Port, Noon, and various banking institutions, further facilitate the ease of doing business in the UAE, reinforcing its position as one of the UAE’s global business hubs.
