Dubai Trade, the UAE Region’s single window platform for cross-border trade, has launched ZADI, a unified food import platform aimed at facilitating the import and re-export of food shipments throughout Dubai’s ports, according to DP World.
In a statement, DP World described the platform as the “first-of-its-kind” in the Middle East. It will be part of Dubai Trade’s drive to be the leading integrated platform in all import and re-export services.
Additionally, it will also align with the UAE’s plans for the post-COVID-19 era that it hopes to ensure a robust recovery and development.
The platform will help over 18,000 companies in Dubai execute 360,000 transactions annually via its streamlined process, according to DP World.
Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said: “The launch of ZADI by Dubai Trade comes as part of our commitment to fulfilling the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make the UAE one of the leading countries worldwide in the post-pandemic economic recovery. “
