A.P. Moller – Maersk has opened its third Warehousing & Distribution (W&D) facility in Dubai, UAE, which is also the company’s first cold store in the country. Situated at Dubai Industrial City, a member of TECOM Group PJSC, Maersk’s Cold Store is strategically located and connects Jebel Ali Port, Al Maktoum International Airport, direct road access across the UAE and an Etihad Rail freight terminal.
“The demand for perishables that require cold storage is rising in the UAE owing to the growing population and robust tourism, resulting in increased demand for speciality foods without compromising the integrity of the product. At Maersk, our purpose is to improve life for all by integrating the world, and we saw an opportunity to establish a facility that would help us achieve our purpose in UAE,” said Christopher Cook, Managing Director, Maersk UAE, Oman and Qatar. “Our new cold store facility is helping us safeguard the integrity of perishables and offer them to end users through uninterrupted cold chain solutions,” he added.
