Alliance in Middle East
Gefco and DP World are lining up as partners in the Middle East. The French company's subsidiary in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where it has been operating for more than eight years, will work with DP World to offer logistics solutions for new vehicles. The focus is on storing and handling vehicles in the covered car park of DP World's flagship Jebel Ali port.
Gefco UAE provides vehicle handling and maintenance services in the covered facility offering protection against sandstorms, sun exposure and dust. Car manufacturers can benefit from reduced transportation costs, warehousing and stock keeping while they can also monitor the stock and status of their vehicles through a dedicated digital portal.
The new solutions also include ocean freight from factories to Jebel Ali port and outbound transportation through the Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) to the Gulf Cooperation Council countries ( CCG), as well as Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Africa. (sh)
