DP World’s Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) and Transworld Group have signed an agreement for the construction of a 50,000+ square meter, dry and temperature-controlled distribution center in Jafza.
The facility will be developed by Jafza and it represents a significant expansion for Transworld that will nearly double its capacity in the region while expanding the logistics infrastructure in the Free Zone.
Mr. Abdullah bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director of DP World GCC, said that, “We are delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with Transworld Group by partnering on this project. This agreement reflects our commitment to providing state-of-the-art solutions that cater to the diverse needs of our clients and foster business growth in Jebel Ali Free Zone while solidifying our position as a leader in the logistics sector.”
The warehouse construction is scheduled to begin in early 2024 and is expected to be completed by 2025, with the expansion coming on the heels of Transworld Group opening its new Cold Chain Distribution Centre in Jafza earlier this year.
Mr. Ramesh S. Ramakrishnan, Chairman of Transworld Group, commented that, “This is a momentous occasion for Transworld Group and a reflection of our faith in DP World, Jafza, and the UAE. This mega distribution center will be a landmark for Transworld, symbolizing our growth and expansion over the last five decades. It will also complement our foray into the food processing sector.”
“We are thankful to Jafza and DP World for facilitating this venture of Transworld and look forward to many more milestones through this partnership as we continue serving our customers,” Mr. Ramakrishnan further added.
