Logistics Industry In The Middle East

Logistics itself is a very big industry which refers to the entire Supply Chain Model of an organization. It begins from the Supplier’s Factory and ends till the product reaches the customer; in between all the processes such as Shipping, Customs, Transportation, storage and distribution of goods fall under the broad category of logistics. Companies usually outsource part or complete logistics activities to multiple service providers that specialize in different functions across the supply chain, such as freight forwarding, transportation, customs clearances and warehousing.


UAE is considered as one of the largest Logistics Hubs in the middle-east and many multinational and local logistics companies have set up in Dubai catering to the increasing demand and specialization services.
