Middle East’s homegrown online marketplace noon.com is expanding its footprint with the launch of its new customer fulfillment facility to EZDubai, Dubai South’s dedicated eCommerce zone.
With the new warehouse, noon will utilize EZDubai’s range of logistics facilities and business solutions to the growth of local SMEs and entrepreneurs who rely on the digital marketplace.
To evaluate the new world-class warehouse, noon’s founder, Mohamed Alabbar, and Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman Dubai Aviation City Corporation & Dubai South, toured the facility, joined by Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of Logistics District, Dubai South, along with other senior executives.
Being the first eCommerce player to set up its business in EZDubai, noon will expand its operations and continue its drive for growth across the country by making the best use of the eCommerce zone’s wide range of facilities and smart solutions for the sector.
The new warehouse facility will store everything from fragrances to refrigerators, with space for thousands of products from local businesses in noon’s Mahali program. Thousands of new jobs have been created to support noon’s logistics and fulfillment expansion plans in EZDubai.
“Noon was created to serve and support local businesses, to give our SMEs and entrepreneurs a world-class platform to drive their business to achieve greater levels of success and growth. Expanding our already established and trusted logistics and fulfillment network with this new location adds to our ability to provide customers with the best experience and level of service. With this partnership, noon will further push the boundaries of eCommerce in the country, helping to cement the Emirate’s position as a digital innovator regionally and globally.”
Commenting on the launch of Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman Dubai Aviation City Corporation & Dubai South stated that, “We are truly delighted to see that noon, one of the most significant eCommerce players in the region has extended its footprint in EZDubai. This is another great testimony for our advanced logistical facilities, optimal business solutions, and our capabilities that cater to multinational companies and small and medium-sized enterprises. We will continue to march towards innovation excellence and spare no efforts to propel the emirate’s and regional eCommerce sector.”
Last year, noon and Dubai South announced their strategic partnership which highlighted that EZDubai proudly welcomed noon.com as the first eCommerce platform to the hub.
EZDubai will make available developed land with favorable infrastructure and necessary processes to support other similar businesses. As the eCommerce sector in the region matures, EZDubai will offer options for large international firms to establish combined regional and national hubs.
