DUBAI: Dubai Exports, the export promotion agency of the Department of Economic Development – Government of Dubai, has brought select third party logistics (3PL) providers to its partnership network as part of extending world class, value added services and capabilities to exporters in Dubai.
“As a government facilitator of trade in Dubai, we are constantly seeking ways to provide value added third party services, such as Credit insurance, Product Certification etc. to exporters,” Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Exports Engineer Saaed Al Awadi said.
“In 2011, our partners in Product Inspection, Certification and Testing directly facilitated our members in AED50 million worth of exports through various value added services. In 2012, those exports reached nearly AED 130 Million within the first eight months. We look forward to achieving greater successes with our new 3PL partners,” Al Awadi added.
He further said: “Our focus in selecting our logistics partners is to have a balance between the local as well as international perspectives on Dubai as a regional hub. It will ensure our members have the right partners who understand their needs and help them grow their business.” The new 3PL partnership will be a significant addition to Dubai Exports’ initiatives to promote exports and re-exports of local firms and facilitate their access to new markets. Logistics being an integral part of the export process, the partnership will also allow exporters to enhance operational efficiencies and gain cutting edge market knowledge.
