With the vast multitude of businesses that thrive in the UAE, it is only suitable that the warehousing facilities provided by the country also live up to the mark. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs and others for their varied business needs.
In the past 40 years of its modernization and rise as a commercial business hub, UAE’s warehouses have evolved from dusty sheds in the desert to impressive, automated storage and dissemination facilities for a variety of goods.
Depending on the nature, longevity and fragility of goods, warehouses are equipped to store them in optimum conditions. Better air-conditioning and refrigeration have dramatically reduced the quantity of goods that may have otherwise perished under the harsh desert conditions.
Warehouses across the country also have highly integrated distribution capabilities which include road, air and sea networks, state-of-the-art technology, equipment and facilities, and qualified workforce to provide total supply chain solutions. These factors have facilitated in timely deliveries and reduced idle inventory.
