Officials at the ground-breaking ceremony.

DB Schenker, a global supply chain and logistics provider, has launched the construction of its third expansion phase with another mega logistics centre at Dubai South’s Logistics District, which will bring its total contract logistics footprint in Dubai to 84,000 sq m by June 2022.

The new green logistics centre will have a 37,000-sq-m warehouse space that includes a 5,000-sq-m mezzanine area dedicated for value-added services and spare-parts operations, in addition to temperature-controlled areas and ambient-temperature zones. It will also utilise 100 per cent renewable energy and act as a GCC distribution hub.

DB Schenker has facilitated the market entry of many international companies to expand their footprints across the globe in this high potential market. This has made it one of the fastest growing logistics service providers in the region expanding the total area of its operated logistics centres from 40,000 to 325,000 sq m in the last seven years.
