The Ajman Free Zone (AFZ) has recorded a 42 percent growth in its eCommerce licenses in 2021 compared to the previous year.

The significant growth is in line with AFZ’s goal to support the industry throughout the UAE, by offering new incentives and packages.

The new results are attributed to AFZ’s diverse set of offerings, mainly warehouse solutions. Warehousing is at the heart of AFZ’s operations and is designed to fill vital logistical gaps, making the free zone a reliable logistical, storage, and distribution center. Furthermore, the dedicated logistics cluster also allows eCommerce businesses to have access to end-to-end warehousing capabilities.

AFZ’s dedicated eCommerce hub is one of the key factors that contributed to the positive growth rate, offering limitless opportunities for the eCommerce sector to thrive. The free zone recently launched the eCommerce hub to boost and support the sector by offering a range of services and opportunities for potential market expansion.
