Tradeling, the Middle East and North Africa’s (MENA) dominant eMarketplace-focused on business-to-business (B2B) transactions, has launched its second fulfillment center in Dubai to meet market demand following the growth it witnessed in Q1 of this year.

The larger expansion strategy of Tradeling includes strengthening its operations in the UAE and broadening its presence throughout the MENA region, starting with Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

The technologically advanced 11,000 square meters fulfillment center located at Tarkhees will drive innovation and wholesale in the MENA region and will mainly cater to international sellers and edukaan customers, which is one of Tradeling’s brands catering to micro-businesses such as groceries and salons.

“We are proud to announce the launch of our second fulfillment center in Dubai to administer greater services to our customers as we continue to grow our business and solidify our presence in the region. Driven by the obsession with our customer’s needs, digital-first mentality, and innovation, the new facility will make sure we keep up with the demand from both buyers and sellers while easing their operational challenges to maximize their earning potential, and ensure competitive pricing.”

Tradeling’s revenue in Q1 has increased by 35 percent month over month and surpassed 30x compared to the same period last year, its product selection reached close to 1 million unique products in 14 categories including automotive, beauty and personal care, construction & hardware, consumer electronics and many more.

The tech-enabled eCommerce platform offers buyers essential value-adds such as finding trading partners and products from verified sellers curated by industry experts, a platform catered to every business type, and trade finance facilities through direct credit lines and several partnerships with banks and credit insurance companies across the UAE.

The new fulfillment center will further capacitate one of Tradeling’s primary offerings focused on enabling sellers to bulk ship their goods to the UAE and sell them in smaller quantities, saving significant shipping costs.

On the other hand, SMEs and micro-businesses in the region will benefit from lower wholesale costs and faster delivery advantages through the “Fulfilled by Tradeling” program. The program also provides several added benefits to international sellers including customs support, inspection services, smart freight options, and last-mile delivery.
