Dubai World Central(DWC) Free Zone Onshore Company, Dubai (U.A.E.)


Dubai World Central Company SetupThe spirit of entrepreneurship and visionary foresight has been the hallmark of Dubai's meteoric rise as a preeminent global destination. From the creation of Port Rashid to the Dubai Metro, the emirate has a tradition of investing in its future and developing the infrastructure necessary to spark future growth and further diversification of its economy. Dubai World Central is a continuation of this legacy. The strategic underpinning of the master-planned development is based on three key factors: Dubai's geographic location, the increasing importance of airports and the regions booming aviation sector.

Dubai is a vital connection point between East and West. Facilitating the global flow of goods, services and ideas, Dubai's foreign trade amounted to USD 190 billion in 2011. Furthermore, its location positions it as gateway to the emerging MENASA (Middle East, North Africa and South Asia) markets, which have a cumulative GDP of USD 3.6 trillion (2009) and an estimated one-quarter of the world's population.

Dubai World Central further cements Dubai's leading position as a logistics and trade hub, by taking advantage of Jebel Ali Port (the largest container port between Singapore and Rotterdam) and seamlessly connects it to Al Maktoum International Airport through the dedicated Dubai Logistics Corridor. This forms a single custom-bonded zone, reducing time on the ground and accelerating the flow of sea-to-air/air-to-sea cargo. With direct access to the major trans-emirate road networks, DWC is a true multimodal logistics platform providing unprecedented levels of connectivity, speed and efficiency.
