Maersk opens new cold store facility in Dubai

Maersk enhances its Logistics & Services with new cold store facility in Dubai

A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has opened its third Warehousing & Distribution (W&D) facility in Dubai, UAE, which is also its first cold store in the country.

Situated at Dubai Industrial City, a member of TECOM Group PJSC, Maersk’s Cold Store is strategically located when it comes to connectivity to Jebel Ali Port, Al Maktoum International Airport, direct road access across the UAE and an Etihad Rail freight terminal.

Consumers are increasingly demanding more choices for frozen and refrigerated food products in supermarkets with extended shelf life and an optimum level of product quality, making cold chain logistics more important than ever before.

Maersk hopes to tap into the UAE’s enormous and expanding need for frozen, chilled, and ambient storage with the 12,500-pallet position space at the new Cold Store facility.

Maersk will provide 24×7 business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) fulfilment operations, eCommerce solutions to retailers/distributors and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) brands, value-added services such as co-packing, labelling, and repacking, cross-docking, and last-mile delivery to retail outlets.

The facility will be outfitted with an innovative warehouse management system, giving clients complete insight at the Purchase Order (PO) or SKU level.

The cold storage facility is expected to allow Maersk’s clients to transport their goods easily while working with a single logistics partner, potentially leading to shorter turnaround times, increased visibility, better control, and predictability of their supply chains.

In June 2023, Maersk placed an order for six mid-sized containerships, each with dual-fuel engines that can run on green methanol.
