Dubai is a vital connection point between East and West. DWC further cements Dubai’s leading position as a logistics and trade hub. It takes 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.
In the recent years, the Middle East has emerged as the center of the global aviation industry. With powerful players such as Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways breaking records and bucking industry trends with remarkable growth and ambitious expansion plans, the region is a key market for companies throughout the entire aviation supply chain. A dedicated aviation district has been designed with both landside and airside access to the Al Maktoum International Airport to capitalize on the opportunities. DWC is committed to creating a viable aviation industry cluster and encouraging the development of FBO’s, MRO’s, Manufacturers, education institutions, consulting and other aviation-related businesses to service and meet the growing demands of the region.
Today’s businesses demand increasingly faster speeds of delivery and greater levels of connectivity. This is driving up demand for air transportation to the point that 35% of world trade by value now depends on it – a percentage that is sure to increase over time. Today, an airport is an economic catalyst and has expanded beyond traditional boundaries to encompass a larger urban development centered on it, forming an aerotropolis. Embracing the aerotropolis model, DWC is the result of a carefully designed, forward-looking master plan that sets the framework for Dubai’s economic future.
