Located in proximity to Dubai World Central Airport (DWC), the new FedEx Express regional hub at Dubai South will incorporate state-of-the-art technologies to support the company’s regional and global networks and increase operational efficiencies to meet growing trade demands within the MEISA region.
The agreement was inked by Khalifa Alzaffin, Executive Chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South and Jack Muhs, Regional President, FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa region. The signing ceremony was held at ‘Hypermotion Dubai’ at the World Expo’s Dubai Exhibition Center, an event focused on next generation mobility and logistics.
“With increasing trade needs within the region and globally, the ideal location of the hub and our advanced technology solutions will allow us to grow and strengthen our presence in the MEISA region and beyond,” Muhs said. “The mega logistic player’s presence will further consolidate our global position as the preferred choice for industry players seeking to operate in an integrated, economic environment, where they would connect with international markets through a multi-modal platform,” commented Al Zaffin.
