Container logistics services integrator, Maersk Kanoo, is to set up its first warehousing and distribution facility in the UAE at Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) in Dubai.
With its new 10,000m2 site, Maersk aims to give customers single window access to multiple logistics requirements, not only for the goods flowing in and out of UAE, but also to other Middle Eastern counties that use Dubai as a gateway to global trade.
Maersk’s new warehousing and distribution facility in Dubai will be an addition to its existing global footprint of over 250 warehouses that cover 1.5 million m2 across 50 countries. The site will offer a total storage capacity of 80,000 m3 and cater for various types of goods, such as petrochemical, retail and lifestyle, fast moving consumer goods, technology and automotive, amongst others. Maersk’s new facility will be powered by an advanced warehouse management system offering digital solutions for inventory management, track and trace and data analysis.
