Supply Chain

Home to Jebel Ali Port- the world's ninth busiest port, the largest man-made harbor, and the biggest and by far the busiest port in the Middle-East, Dubai has made massive strides to becoming a global supply-chain hub in recent years. Its Logistics sector is the second largest contributor to its GDP, recorded at 12.8% in 2019.

The sector has prospered as a result of an excellent air, sea and land transport capabilities, combined with its strategic location between East and Western Europe and state of the art infrastructure and as such serves as the basis for its growing industrial transformation. Some of the world’s biggest Logistics companies are doing business within Dubai’s borders, including DHL, FedEx, and more.
