Announcement was made during AFZ’s participation in the Seamless ME 2022 event
June 1, 2022: Ajman Free Zone (AFZ) announced a remarkable growth of 45 per cent in its e-commerce sector, for 2022. The announcement, which reaffirms AFZ’s position as a global business hub with advanced solutions and state-of-the-art facilities, was made during its attendance in the Seamless Middle East 2022 conference.
The latest results can be attributed to AFZ's diverse set of offerings, primarily warehouse solutions, as well as the evolving e-commerce sector in the UAE. Warehousing solutions have remained a core focus in AFZ’s operations and are designed to fill critical logistical gaps, making the free zone a reliable logistics, storage, and distribution center. Additionally, the dedicated logistics cluster also benefits e-commerce businesses by providing access to end-to-end warehousing capabilities.
Furthermore, the free zone showed its support for its e-commerce partners during Seamless ME 2022, by having five of its business partners – DM Mobility, Bayt Al Oud, Souq Bazar, Apple Wang, and Fast Commerce – exhibit their range of services and offerings at the AFZ booth.
H.E. Eng. Ali AlSuwaidi, Director General of AFZ, said: “The e-commerce sector has been integral to our success, especially considering its rapid growth in the country. AFZ recognizes the importance of having advanced logistics facilities installed in strategic locations for broad outreach and market penetration, in order to facilitate e-commerce growth. The positive results reflect our strategic approach and guidelines to developing this industry and attracting more businesses with our e-commerce hub, advanced range of offerings, and other value-added services.”
“The Seamless ME 2022 conference is an ideal platform to showcase AFZ’s competitiveness as a strategically located business or investor-friendly destination, with advanced infrastructure, exclusive incentives, and commercial spaces that guarantee modern facilities, innovative solutions, and other value-added services for e-commerce businesses. We are also happy to see our business partners exhibiting with us, which further demonstrates our commitment to support them,” he added.
AFZ’s participation in Seamless Middle East Conference and Exhibition and its latest growth results come as strong indicators of the business hub's commitment to empowering businesses with world-class facilities, incentives, and other value-added services. AFZ's effective partnerships with major entities, such as Ajman Chamber, Ajman Port, Noon, and various banking institutions, further facilitate the ease of doing business in the UAE, reinforcing its position as one of the UAE's global business hubs.
