The UAE, being a global investment destination, offers scores of business solutions for companies in different industries. These solutions include warehouses for chemical, cold and general storage, and light industrial use.

The high-ceiling commercial structures generally comprise offices, garages, pantries, lifts, loading bays, toilets, CCTV systems and even praying areas, among others.

Rental rates vary widely depending on the unit size, location, and facilities and amenities.

Practically designed to offer easy accessibility for loading and unloading goods, warehouses in the country are usually located close to the seaports and airports, an advantage that helps businesses operate and produce products continuously.

Warehouses in Dubai are scattered all over but they have quick access to the two international airports and different ports. Businesses can choose from the wide options available in Jebel Ali, Al Quoz, Garhoud, Qusais, Rashidiya and Dubai Industrial City, among many others.

In the capital, modern warehousing solutions are generally offered in Mussafah (including ICAD), Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), Khalifa Port and Zayed Port.

The Hamriyah Free Zone and the Emirates Industrial City are two of the destinations in Sharjah that offer pre-built warehouses to accommodate the emirate's swelling industries.

Meanwhile, Ajman's warehouse facilities are mainly located in Al Jurf, Umm Al Quwain's at the Emirates Modern Industrial Area and Fujairah at its free trade zone. RAK Free Trade Zone's Business Park, Industrial Park, Technology Park and Al Ghail Park also provide investors with warehouse facilities.
