DWC Free Zone – Dubai World Central Free Zone – Overview

Dubai is a vital connection point between East and West. DWC Free Zone further cements Dubai’s leading position as a logistics and trade hub. It takes advantage of Jebel Ali Port (the largest container port between Singapore and Rotterdam) and seamlessly connects it to Al Maktoum International Airport through the dedicated Dubai Logistics Corridor. This forms a single custom-bonded zone, reducing time on the ground and accelerating the flow of sea-to-air/ air-to-sea cargo. With direct access to the major trans-emirate road networks, DWC Free Zone is a true multimodal logistics platform providing unprecedented levels of connectivity, speed and efficiency.
