New trading and logistics hub Jafza Logistics Park starts construction

Park covers a total leasable area of over 46,000sqm, 87% of which will be allocated to warehousing

DP World has broken ground on Phase One of its Jafza Logistics Park, which is billed as a purpose-built trading and logistics development. Located in Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), the park will accommodate the growing number of warehousing, processing and logistics activities carried out in Dubai.

According to a statement from DP World, the new facility will reinforce the success of the logistics cluster in Jafza, which has already grown by 14% since 2016. The project covers a total leasable area of over 46,000sqm, of which 87% will be allocated to warehousing. The remaining space is dedicated to office facilities.

Jafza Logistics Park businesses will be able to leverage DP World’s integrated end-to-end logistics solutions and expertise as a data-driven supply chain logistics provider. The park’s location between Jebel Ali Port, Al Maktoum International Airport, and Etihad Rail’s Jebel Ali station will facilitate the efficient and seamless flow of goods within the region and across the world, the statement explained.

The ground-breaking ceremony was attended by Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO & MD of DP World UAE & Jafza, as well as the company’s leadership team. He explained, “We recognise the critical role the logistics sector plays in enabling the growth of various industries around the globe. Jafza is aligned with key government initiatives, such as the Dubai Silk Road strategy, to boost economic growth. As the UAE continues to grow into a global processing and redistribution gateway, we have experienced a significant spike in demand for the logistics and warehousing space.”

He concluded, “We are building the Jafza Logistics Park in response to this increase in demand and to further boost the development of the UAE’s logistics sector. Logistics companies in e-commerce and similar growing segments can benefit from the park’s modern offerings, including digital trade enablement, competitive costs, and customisable units. We’re in discussions with a number of large customers that need 60 to 80% of the space and may need to commission phase two ahead of schedule.”
