Economic Zones World (EZW) and Dubai Aviation City have teamed up to develop the Logistics Corridor, a new framework that will aim to establish Dubai as a leading light in air, sea and land infrastructure and logistics.
The agreement, signed by Salma Hareb, chief executive officer of EZW and Rashed Buqara'a, chief operating officer of Dubai Aviation City, is the first step in creating a seamless trade and transit infrastructure that will propel the emirate as a regional logistics hub.
Ms Hareb said that the Logistics Corridor will help to link the world's largest artificial sea port with the largest airport in the world, creating a logistics network "unsurpassed in global connectivity".
"EZW is delighted to be a part of an initiative that will contribute significantly to the long-term progress of Dubai and the nation," she added.
Earlier this year, EZW was named innovator of the year at the Middle East Logistics Awards 2009.
