Total Freight International breaks ground on new facility in Dubai World Central's Logistics District
 

[UAE, July 22, 2013] Dubai World Central (DWC), the world's first purpose-built aerotropolis, has revealed that UAE-based Total Freight International LLC has commenced construction of its own facility in DWC's Logistics District. The 5,600-sqm facility, which will be operational in April 2014, will primarily be used for general cargo warehousing, distribution and value added services, in addition to featuring office space.

A section of the warehouse space within the state-of-the-art facility will specifically be allocated for cargo requiring a temperate-controlled environment. Moreover, the infrastructure of the facility has been designed to be scalable, which means that the whole warehouse can be easily converted into a temperate-controlled facility in the future if required. The facility has a total storage capacity of 8,400 pallet positions, with the temperature-controlled section having an initial capacity of 600 pallet positions.         

Saajin Salim, Director – Business Development, Total Freight International LLC, said, “As a second generation member in the business I feel the freight and logistics industry has matured well in the UAE and the region as a whole. I believe that Dubai has reached its high stature due to the farsighted vision of its government. The emirate has been able to achieve remarkable progress at a time when there was very little infrastructure for the smooth flow of cargo traffic. The Government of Dubai truly deserves a salute of appreciation for their dedication, and foresight, which has provided today's generation of freight executives like myself, a path to follow and build upon. I believe we need to learn from our seniors, use their best practices, and help grow the logistics industry to greater heights. I am truly humbled and grateful to have the opportunity to follow in their foot steps.”

“Through our upcoming facility at Dubai World Central we will be well-positioned to meet the requirements of our local and international customers for storage, distribution, and transit of their goods. Key factors such as our close proximity to the cargo terminal of Al Maktoum International Airport and the single customs-bonded corridor between DWC and Jebel Ali Port will enable us to seamlessly move freight, giving us a definite competitive edge as we cater to our rapidly-growing customer base,” he added. 

Total Freight International LLC also revealed that an area in the new facility will be allotted for Container Freight Station (CFS) operations, consolidation/de-consolidation, and break-down of airline cargo. 

Mohsen Ahmed, VP - Logistics District, said, “The decision to set up its own facility at Dubai World Central will eventually translate into significant strategic advantages for Total Freight International LLC as it targets to consolidate and expand its presence in the regional markets. The company can leverage DWC's integrated infrastructure, the cutting-edge facilities of the Logistics District and our multimodal capabilities, to enable seamless movement of cargo, which is a vital factor when it comes to addressing the requirements of their clients in today's dynamic business environment.”

DWC offers an array of benefits to logistics businesses with its integrated operation model, high level of security and safety, enhanced connectivity and competitive pricing. Its modern facilities and state-of-the-art infrastructure have enabled businesses to expand regionally and globally from Dubai.
