Panalpina opens new logistics manufacturing hub in Dubai South

Posted 16 March 2017 · Add Comment

Panalpina CEO Stefan Karlen has officially opened the company's new logistics manufacturing center in Dubai South.

 

The 40,000 m2 facility, adjacent to Al Maktoum International Airport, supports circular supply chains and will enable Panalpina to grow its logistics and freight forwarding business in the Middle East, Africa and CIS (MEAC) region. Three times bigger than the previous facility and with state-of-the-art infrastructure, it offers plenty of room to further grow with both existing and new customers.

“Dubai, strategically located between East and West, and with excellent airport, port and road connections, is ideal for operating a regional supply chain hub for the Middle East, Africa and CIS,” said Karlen. “We first set foot in the United Arab Emirates 25 years ago and today’s official inauguration of our new logistics manufacturing centre, which was built exactly to our business needs and those of our customers, opens a new exciting chapter for our logistics and freight forwarding activities in the region. It is the biggest facility of this type that we currently operate.”
