Innovative tech solutions are the way forward in this age of the Technological Revolution

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 15 October 2018:   Regional trade enabler DP World, UAE Region, continues to be the preferred destination for electronic goods entering or exiting the Middle East. 

DP World UAE Region plays a central role in the growth of the sector across the country with consumer electronics one of five sectors that account for 76 per cent of the trade value generated by Jafza which amounted to USD 83.1 billion AED in 2017. 

The regional trade enabler is also strengthening its supply chain by using innovative technologies to meet the need for on-demand logistics services created by increasing consumer consumption through online purchases.

As DP World’s flagships, Jebel Ali Port and Free Zone will be the focus for a major digitalisation project across the Group’s global network based on Oracle Cloud Applications (SaaS) in a move that could spur further digital technology adoption in the UAE.
