Dubai Logistics City
Dubai Logistics City (DLC) is the world’s first logistics platform with all transport modes and value added services, including light manufacturing and assembly. The City is a part of Dubai World Central development and is located near to Jebel Ali free zone. With the capacity to turn over 12 million tonnes of air cargo a year, it is certainly one of the most productive areas in the UAE.
The aim is for DLC to become a platform of excellence for integrated logistics operations, serving the world class supply chain, and making Dubai the number one choice for global logistics. At DLC, companies will be able to focus on making the best of their supply chains using the City as the global hub for sea-air or air-air transport combinations.
DLC serves every transport mode, logistics needs and value adding operation in the supply chain, including light manufacturing and assembly all within a single bonded free zone environment. As a transit hub it links continents and markets such as Asia, Europe and Africa.
As part of the Dubai World Central Free Zone, DLC delivers all the advantages of a Dubai free zone, such as no corporate tax, no personal income tax and no customs duties. It also offers secure investments, including 100% foreign company ownership, free capital transfers, and access to 2 billion-consumer markets. This free zone platform is offered exclusively to logistics businesses to ensure the logistics community can collaborate seamlessly and find sufficient space to expand in the future.
DLC is particularly appealing to companies with multi-modal transportation needs, corporations seeking professional logistics environments and free trade facilities, innovative logistics service companies, businesses needing speedy air freight, multi-modal transportation and complex logistics services.
