The first and leading dedicated e-commerce free zone in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region has begun commercial operations signalling an exciting new chapter for global e-commerce and trade. The free zone provides seamless solutions to establish businesses and integrated services to drive the growth of licensed e-commerce companies. Companies can also benefit from unique service packages provided by global partners in the logistics, information technology and other sectors.
Dubai CommerCity has succeeded in leasing 30% of its facilities within a period of only two months in the first part of the development phase of the free zone, which extends over an area of 2.1 million square feet and backed by an investment of 3.2 billion dirhams. The success of the first phase leasing highlights the compelling benefits the free zone brings for local, regional, and international businesses. The milestone emphasizes the interest from key players in the market in this one-of-a-kind free zone in the region. As part of its efforts in supporting its customers and providing them with the best services, Dubai CommerCity has commenced the operation of its customs office, available to provide ongoing support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in response to the customs’ needs of all customers on board.
Dubai CommerCity is providing special launch offers for investors as part of the start of commercial operations, through an ‘Early Bird Campaign’, providing e-commerce organizations with an unmissable opportunity to grow their businesses in the UAE and the region. The campaign, which runs until mid-September, offers Dubai CommerCity’s customers a chance to save up to 50 percent on setting up their businesses within the free zone.
The purpose-built development is set to accelerate the already significant rise seen in e-commerce business setups and online retail in Dubai and across the UAE. Dubai CommerCity is uniquely designed to drive forward regional and international e-commerce businesses.
Now open for business in the Umm Ramool area near to Dubai International Airport, Dubai CommerCity offers a unique ecosystem and comprehensive solutions for businesses to run effectively and seamlessly. In addition to offering a complete business setup and customs support, Dubai CommerCity provides e-commerce strategy consulting, guidance on e-commerce regulations in the region and end-to-end logistics solutions inclusive of warehousing and last mile delivery. Organizations can also gain access to complete e-commerce platform solutions, digital marketing services and other support services, including photo studios, call centres and more.
Dubai CommerCity includes state-of-the-art offices, as well as warehousing and last-mile delivery services. With its world-class infrastructure, the free zone provides flexible office sizes and scalable fulfilment centres, which offer various dedicated solutions for e-commerce businesses.
Dubai CommerCity is divided into three clusters, each with its own innovative design. The Business Cluster is home to modern landscaped buildings with Grade A premium offices; the Logistics Cluster which consists of state-of-the-art dedicated and multi-client warehouse units with scalable pay-as-you-go pricing models; and the Social Cluster houses restaurants, cafes, exhibition halls and events.
Dubai CommerCity will be unveiling new office buildings B1 and B3 in October 2022 and will also be launching Phase 2 of its Logistics Cluster during the same month
