Total Freight Int breaks ground on new facility in DWC

Nov 12,2014

Total Freight International LLC has announced the commencement of construction of its facility in DWC’s Logistics District, the worlds first purpose built aerotropolis.

The 6,500-sqm facility, 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 8,500 pallet positions, with the temperature-controlled section having an initial capacity of 500 pallet positions.

The upcoming facility at Dubai World Central will position Total Freight International to meet the requirements of local and international customers for storage, distribution, and transit of their goods. Key factors such as the 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 seamless movement of freight, providing a definite competitive edge to cater to the rapidly-growing customer base.

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.

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.
