Transport & Logistics

Dubai 2019 Transport & Logistics

As a well-established regional hub for transport and logistics, Dubai is the UAE’s primary transit point for passengers and the main gateway for its non-oil exports and imports. Counting one of the world’s busiest airports and the Middle East’s largest port among its facilities, the transport sector makes a significant contribution to Dubai’s economy as well as that of the wider UAE. In 2017 transport and storage accounted for 11.2% of Dubai’s economy at a value of Dh46.1bn ($12.5bn), second only to wholesale and retail trade, which accounted for 25.8% of the economy. Although the emirate’s economy has had difficulties in recent years due to a series of largely external fac¬tors, the trans¬port and logistics sector has by and large bucked the trend. This chapter contains an interview with Mohammed Al Zarooni, Director-General, Dubai Airport Freezone Authority.
