UAE developer Dubai South Properties has announced that Phase 1 of EZDubai, its fully dedicated e-commerce zone, which is located in the heart of Dubai South’s Logistics District is now 20% operational, while 27% of the project is under development.
The free zone which was launched in January 2019 by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, aims to consolidate the emirate’s position as a hub for global e-commerce, UAE’s state-run news agency Wam reported.
The e-commerce operational zone is located next to Al Maktoum International Airport with a direct connection to the Jebel Ali Port.
EZDubai supports and complements the Dubai e-commerce strategy, which was launched last year by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, with an aim to attract more foreign direct investments in the e-commerce sector.
Speaking about the project progress, chief executive officer of the logistic district at Dubai South, Mohsen Ahmad, said: “The establishment of EZDubai has bridged the gap in e-commerce, not only in Dubai but the GCC as well.”
EZDubai is touted as Dubai’s first dual-licenced, hybrid-bonded facility. In Phase 1 of operation, the facility spans a total area of 340,000m2, of which, 68,000m2 is operational and an additional 91,000m2 is under-development. The e-commerce zone constitutes e-fulfilment centres, infrastructure for repair and return centres, supply centres, and business blocks as part of the zone’s master plan.
