China-based UDA Express, which is one of the largest logistics company in China, is taking up space in EZDubai, a fully dedicated e-commerce free zone strategically located in the heart of Dubai South’s Logistics District, media reports said.
In this regard, Robert Zhang, President of UDA Express – Middle East and North Africa told the media, “EZDubai’s strategic location, its advanced logistics facilities, optimal business solutions, and capabilities that cater to all sorts of companies will consolidate our objective of becoming the premier international logistics and express delivery service provider in the Middle East. We are confident that through our new expansion, the company will complete its networking in the Middle East and link up with our existing network in China, providing direct and efficient logistics solutions to customers in China and the Middle East.”
UDA Express controls 59 self-operated distribution centres in China across 3,835,000 square metres and more than 30,000 stores across 30 countries.
Earlier this month, SEKO Logistics expanded its horizon in China by leveraging its private equity investor – Ridgemont Equity Partners, according to the media. An existing warehouse of SEKO will be expanded with a fulfilment centre in Shenzhen. This refurbished warehouse will provide cross-dock and export services along with climate and humidity controlled zones to fulfil high-value-ecommerce shipments. This increases SEKO’s capacity by 400 percent to 250,000 parcels a day.
