Dubai South and Aldar to build facility for Kuehne + Nagel

The facility will provide 3PL, e-commerce, and goods handling services

Dubai South and Aldar Properties will develop a build to suit facility for Kuehne+Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics providers, at EZDubai, the fully dedicated e-commerce hub in Dubai South, it was announced in a press communication.

Located in close proximity and direct access to Al Maktoum International Airport, as well as Jebel Ali port via a bounded logistics corridor, the logistics facility is being developed as part of the joint venture between Dubai South and Aldar to develop Grade A logistics facilities at Dubai South’s Logistics District. The facility is expected to be handed over to Kuehne+Nagel by Q2-2025.

Spanning 22,915sqm, the facility will provide third-party logistics (3PL), e-commerce, and goods handling services, and is designed to include office space, warehousing capabilities, and an amenities block.

LEED Silver Certification

The facility was designed to attain a LEED Silver Certification by incorporating efficient design and energy-saving elements. The building’s flooring will feature an innovative system utilizing high-performance steel fibers, including those sourced from repurposed end-of-life tire wire and cord, ensuring both strength and reduced carbon footprint.

The agreement was recently signed at Dubai South headquarters in the presence of Mohsen Ahmad, CEO, Logistics District, Dubai South; Jonathan Emery, CEO, Aldar Development; Lee I’Ons, GCC+ Managing Director, Kuehne+Nagel, as well as other senior executives from the three entities.

Key priorities

“Our partnership with Aldar is a strategic one, and we are committed to attracting the top players to contribute to the key priorities of the Dubai Economic Agenda ‘D33’- in establishing Dubai as one of the top five logistics hubs in the world,” stated Mohsen Ahmad.

“We continue to activate the initial AED 1bn investment we committed to the sector and look forward to making further announcements this year,” commented Emery.

“Thanks to the strategic location of EZ Dubai, a carefully designed e-commerce zone by Dubai South, Aldar’s strong development capabilities, and Kuehne+Nagel’s global expertise in handling e-commerce, the new Fulfillment Centre will further strengthen our successful cooperation,” remarked Lee l’Ons.
