Total Freight International breaks ground on new facility in DWC

Nov 12,2014

Total Freight International (TFI) has recently announced the commencement of its facility’s construction in Dubai World Central’s (DWC) Logistics District, the first purpose-built aerotropolis in the world. 

Features and capabilities

Spanning 6,500 square metres, the state-of-the-art facility will primarily be used for general cargo warehousing, distribution, and value-added services, in addition to featuring an office space. Designed to be scalable, it will also have a dedicated section for goods that may require a temperature-controlled environment in the future. Currently, it features a total storage capacity of 8,500 pallet positions, with the temperature-controlled space having an initial capacity of 500 pallet positions.

Furthermore, an area in the soon-to-rise facility will be allotted for Container Freight Station (CFS) operations, consolidation/de-consolidation, and breakdown of airline cargo.

A gateway to the world

The upcoming warehouse facility in Dubai World Central will strongly position TFI to meet the requirements of local and international customers for storage, distribution, and transit of their goods. Key factors such as 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 the company with a competitive edge to cater to its rapidly growing customer base.

The DWC advantage

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.
