Emirates Post has opened a dedicated parcel handling facility in EZDubai, the dedicated e-commerce free zone located in the heart of Dubai South’s Logistics District. The 33,475ft2 operation will handle parcels and express (P&E), domestic and international volumes, and is the company’s second largest sorting and delivery center in the UAE. It is expected to handle over 25% of total P&E business volumes over the next three years.
According to Emirates Post, the EZDubai facility strengthens its position as a major player in the e-commerce market with enhanced first-mile, last-mile, warehousing, and fulfilment capabilities. The center will also house a dedicated customs’ clearance team to support the movement of deliveries from the free zone to the local market and rest of the world.
Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, said, “At EZDubai, we are always on the lookout to attract the top local and international players in the industry. We are pleased to welcome Emirates Post, and this facility will support the handling and processing of their volumes arriving and departing via DWC [Al Maktoum International Airport] and [the port of] Jebel Ali, along with the development of its road transport network around the region in the years to come. Having the bonded and non-bonded warehouse facilities at Dubai South helps us cater to customers’ demands with our mandate to attract international and local logistics and e-commerce players, boosting the growth of the logistics sector in general.”
Peter Somers, CEO of Emirates Post, added, “The opening of our new facility supports our business transformation plan to further enhance service levels and customer experience, grow our parcels and express business, and invest in automation and digitalization to provide the best first- and last-mile solutions in the UAE. As customer happiness is the core of our strategy, this facility will allow us to offer a more tailored experience to our customers, serving our business and individual customers in a more efficient manner with faster deliveries and more flexible pick-up and drop-off times.”
