Dubai Logistics City

About Dubai Logistic City

Dubai Logistic City is home to Dubai Logistics City (DLC), world’s first multi-modal integrated logistics platform. DLC incorporates more than 25 sq. km of free zone and serves every transport mode, logistics need and value-adding operation in the supply chain, including manufacturing and assembly, all within a single-bonded, free zone environment.

With a capacity to turn over 12 million tons of air cargo annually, Dubai Logistics City is strategically located alongside the world’s biggest airport, the new DWC Al Maktoum International Airport and adjacent to one of the world’s largest container handlers, Jebel Ali Port and Free Zone.

DLC is ideal for businesses such as:

  • Companies with multi-modal transportation needs
  • Corporations seeking professional logistics environments and free trade facilities
  • Range of innovative, value-added logistics services
  • Businesses requiring speedy air freight, multi-modal transportation and complex logistics services

Companies can establish distribution centers in DLC, replenish them via land, air or sea and deliver to customers using the most cost and time effective methods.

Dubai Logistic City provides an office park as well as land along the DLC access road that can be developed to host a wide range of service businesses. The office park is located in the heart of Dubai Logistics City as part of a landscaped campus. It is part of the free zone but situated outside the customs bonded area, thus combining the free zone operational advantages with easy and unrestricted public access.

The office park provides more than 400,000 sq. m of rentable office space. DLC supplies modular office space to allow utmost flexibility. Sections of 100 sq. m can be combined to create larger integrated offices or even merged into entire floors.

This allows companies to easily set up their local operations, administrative offices, showrooms and customer facing facilities or entire head offices. Multi-level car parking ensures easy access to all 18 office blocks and a dedicated road network links the DLC office park to the Emirates Road.


Destined to become another of Dubai’s outstanding commercial landmarks, Dubai Logistics City supports the emirate’s market leading position as a logistics hub for the wider Middle East and beyond. It serves the growing needs of multinational companies involved in a range of different fields such as:

  • High-tech and electronics
  • Spare parts and after-sales
  • Healthcare and life sciences
  • Consumer goods and fashion
  • Relief aid and NGOs

DLC serves every transport mode, logistics need and value-adding operation in the supply chain, including light manufacturing and assembly, all within a single-bonded free zone environment. It is a transit hub linking continents and markets such as Asia, Europe and Africa by providing:

  • Air-air transport to connect even remote sources with core world markets
  • Sea-air transport to ensure on-time delivery within intercontinental supply chains and keep costs under control
  • The option to combine transit with customization, packaging or labeling of goods and other value-adding services

The service providers, forwarders, integrators and airlines within the community provide a total package of professional logistics solutions to a wide range of industries like trading companies, light manufacturing and assembly businesses. Air cargo from the existing Dubai International Airport will be linked to DLC via bonded and professionally operated road and rail corridor. This scheduled resource will operate round-the-clock, several times an hour, delivering cargo directly to the heart of the DLC business community.
