UAE’s official postal operator and leading express provider Emirates Post has opened a 33,475 square feet new facility in EZDubai, the fully dedicated eCommerce free zone strategically located in the heart of Dubai South’s Logistics District.

The new facility will handle parcels and express domestic and international volumes, and is the company’s second-largest sorting and delivery center in the UAE. Further, it is expected to handle more than 25 percent of total P&E business volumes within the next three years.

According to the statement, EZDubai has all it takes to support the launch of Emirates Post’s new facility by providing its customers in the neighboring areas with their international and domestic shipping requirements.

The new facility at EZDubai reinforces Emirates Post’s position as a major player in the eCommerce market with improved first-mile, last-mile, warehousing, and fulfillment capabilities. The center will also house a dedicated customs clearance team to help deliveries from the free zone to the local market and the rest of the world.
