The chemical logistics hub is set to be a honeycomb arrangement covering 12,000 square metres specifically designed to separate effectively different classes of hazardous goods plus an overflow area for non-hazardous items of around 10,000 square metres. The airfreight handling terminal is to be 15,000 square metres consisting of two equal sized units and is intended to act as an intermodal exchange hub for ocean freight consignments shipping via Jebel Ali and road haulage shipments using the Danzas distribution network.

Meanwhile ground was also broken this week on the new aerospace hub being developed by French forwarding group SDV. The site, situated on a 5,000 square metre plot in the Dubai Airport Freezone (DAFZ) is part of SDV’s strategy to continue its aeronautics platforms’ development located in strategic areas.

This policy is intended to ensure a continuous spare parts management and aeronautics after sales services for all the group’s aviation customers no matter where the need arises. The new building should be operational by the second quarter of 2014.
