DHL to use UAE rail network
UAE’s Etihad Rail and DHL Global Forwarding have signed a strategic partnership agreement to establish a joint venture company, which will enable DHL to use Etihad Rail’s network to conduct its main operations within the Emirates.
Under the terms of the agreement, DHL Global Forwarding will adopt rail as one of its major modes of transport to distribute goods throughout this region.
