DWC launches new local gate pass system

DUBAI, March 21, 2015

The Logistics District at Dubai World Central (DWC) has announced the launch of a modern electronic system that regulates the process of issuing entry permits of local goods to the free zone and reduces the time necessary to issue these permits.

DWC’s Logistics District is the first free zone in Dubai to invest time and money in developing such a smart system, in co-operation with Dubai Customs and Dubai Trade and exploring customers’ feedback to learn their needs and determine the best new technologies that will enhance the efficiency and speed in issuing permits for the entry, storage and exit of local goods to and from the free zone.

The activation of the new system comes in line with DWC’s commitment to applying smart solutions across all of its districts, corresponding to Dubai’s strategy which was launched last year by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into a smart city, said a top official.

"We are proud to be the first free zone to launch this advanced electronic system and contribute to the transformation of Dubai into a smart city," said Mohsen Ahmad, Vice President of the Logistics District at DWC.

"There were some issues in controlling and following-up on the entry, storage and exit of goods to and from the free zone. Now, the new smart system offers unprecedented smoothness in the inventory and monitoring of goods electronically and the ease of issuing entry permits online around the clock," stated Ahmad.

With this new system, customers to enter the free zone need only to present the number of the entry permit they get when registering online," he added.

Abdullah Mohammed Al Khaja, the executive director of clients management division at Dubai Customs, said: "We are delighted to co-operate with DWC in launching this new smart system that will provide us with more control over local goods entering the free zone for temporary storage, assembly, distribution or re-export."

"The system will also simplify the process of issuing entry permits, avoiding the possible loss of the necessary documents or entry permits, which used to be issued manually," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
