Danzas to build logistics facilities at DWC
Dubai, November 13, 2013
Danzas AEI Emirates, a joint venture between the Al Tayer Group and DHL Global Forwarding, has broken ground for its two new airfreight and chemical logistics facilities at the Dubai World Central's Logistics District.
Senior officials from DWC, Danzas, and other key stakeholders attended the special ceremony for the buildings, which are being developed at a cost of Dh148 million ($40.3 million) and are due for completion by November next year.
The chemical logistics facility will comprise 12,000 sq m of multiple chambers capable of handling various classes of dangerous goods and another 10,000 sq m of space for non-hazardous materials.
On the other hand, the airfreight operations facility will contain two fully equipped 7,500 sq m chambers that will integrate with airfreight movements to and from the Al Maktoum International Airport (AMIA).
The company will be able to provide cargo handling and cross-docking capability for both Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport, while it will also provide accessible links to the intermodal transportation capabilities of the Jebel Ali sea port and the Danzas Road Freight Network.
Rashed Buqara’a, chief operating officer, Dubai Aviation City Corporation, said: “Logistics companies are joining the ranks of other businesses that are increasingly realising the benefits of DWC’s dedicated infrastructure and highly integrated environment for driving growth in this region.”
“When the latest Danzas facilities open next year they will further enhance the existing operational footprint of Danzas in Dubai, bringing its total operational space to about 200,000 sq m,” added Samer Kaissi, country manager, Danzas AEI Emirates. - TradeArabia News Service
