A state-of-the art logistics center of Transworld Group, the company specialising in shipping, transport and allied activities, was inaugurated on April 13 by Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation at Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (Jafza).
The new facility will offer a comprehensive range of services, backed by cutting edge technology to serve customers. The logistics center with a 6000 square meter warehouse is designed to meet the challenges in the supply chain management. The facility will have the latest infrastructure to provide high quality services to clients across the Middle East region.
Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem said, "The shipping industry in the Middle East has expanded rapidly over the years, as a result of the booming business activity in the region. This has required shipping companies to strengthen their operations in order to have a competitive edge and effectively serve clients. Jafza will be an ideal base for the Transworld Group to focus on their shipping and allied services, as the free zone offers a range of facilities and benefits that are of international standards."
The Transworld Group has been expanding its operations in the areas of ship owning, ship operating, shipping agencies, logistics centers, container freight stations and ship & marine container repairs. The group has a global presence in over 30 locations with 1000 employees.
Jafza offers numerous advantages to companies setting up operations in the zone, like simple administrative procedures, zero duties on all import and export goods and machineries within the free zone, modern communication facilities and excellent support services. In addition, Jafza recently moved into the next level of diversification by launching the South Zone, which has eight specific industry clusters like Digital Valley, Construction Square and Chemical and Plastic Field to cater to the requirements of various industrial segments.
"Jafza continues to attract leading companies to establish their operations in the zone. Today Jafza is among the top free zones in the world and we are stepping up our expansion and development plans to target specific industrial sectors. Transworld, which is emerging as a premier shipping and logistics company will benefit immensely by the facilities at Jafza and we are certain that they would be able to accomplish their corporate goals at a faster pace," said Abdullah Rashid Lootah, Chief Operating Officer, Jafza.
