E-commerce freezone Dubai CommerCity (DCC) has opened new facilities as part of first phase launch. The new facilities include office spaces as well as e-commerce logistics units and multi-client warehouses.
Dubai CommerCity is situated in the Umm Ramool area in Dubai, and is a Dh3.2-billion, 2.1 million sq.ft project. The launch of the new phase includes a built-up area of over 320,000 sq.ft of offices spaces in the Business Cluster.
Divided into three main clusters – business, logistics and social, the freezone aims to attract global and regional manufacturers, as well as distributors and global e-retailers while offering tax and investment incentives.
It also includes 145,000 sq ft e-commerce logistics units and multi-client warehouses in the logistics cluster, which will be managed and operated by Hellmann Worldwide Logistics and DHL.
Hellmann will provide end-to-end warehousing services like order management systems and streamlined customs clearance processes and offer last mile delivery services through its partner DHL Express, from the warehouse directly to the consumer.
Dubai CommerCity has so far leased more than 51 per cent of the logistics warehouses to companies launching their operations in different sectors, ranging from e-commerce, logistics and information technology to fashion, jewelry and electronics, a statement said.
Dubai CommerCity will also offer storage options and a pay-as-you-go payment model to ensure ‘cost efficiency’ and ‘flexibility’.
It also also has signed partnership agreements with e-commerce software provider Magento Commerce and digital consultancy Redbox Digital to offer ‘e-commerce-as-a-service’ offerings including special rates on key Magento software, pre-integration with payment gateways, third party logistics systems, marketing affiliates and analytics tools. Project services such as consultancy, discovery and requirements building, as well as testing major and minor customisations will also be provided by Redbox.
