New warehouse to utilise EZDubai’s range of business and logistics facilities
EZDubai, Dubai South’s dedicated e-commerce zone, has announced the expansion of noon.com, the region's homegrown digital marketplace, with the launch of a brand-new customer fulfilment facility.
Noon’s new warehouse will utilise EZDubai’s range of logistics facilities and business solutions to further support the growth of local SMEs and entrepreneurs who rely on noon as their digital platform.
To celebrate the opening of the world-class warehouse, noon’s founder, Mohamed Alabbar, and HE Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman Dubai Aviation City Corporation & Dubai South, toured the facility, joined by Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of Logistics District, Dubai South, among other senior executives.
Representing the first e-commerce player to establish in EZDubai, noon will expand upon its operations and continuous drive for growth across the country by taking advantage of EZDubai’s range of facilities and smart solutions for the sector.
The new warehouse facility will store everything from fragrances to refrigerators, with space for thousands of products from local businesses in noon’s Mahali program. Thousands of new jobs have been created to support noon’s logistics and fulfilment expansion plans in EZDubai.
Mohamed Alabbar, noon, said: “Noon was created to serve and support local businesses, to give our SMEs and entrepreneurs a world-class platform to drive their business to achieve greater levels of success and growth.
"Expanding our already established and trusted logistics and fulfillment network with this new location adds to our ability to provide customers with the best experience and level of service."
HE Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman Dubai Aviation City Corporation & Dubai South, commented: “This is another great testimony for our advanced logistical facilities, optimal business solutions, and our capabilities that cater to multinational companies and small and medium-sized enterprises.
"We will continue to march towards innovation excellence and spare no efforts to propel the emirate’s and regional e-commerce sector.”
In October last year noon.com and Dubai South announced their strategic partnership which highlighted that EZDubai proudly welcomed noon.com, the region’s leading digital marketplace, as the first e-commerce platform to the hub.
The new noon EZDubai facility was key in supporting the millions of successful Yellow Friday Sale deliveries across the country in November, delighting customers across the country.
EZDubai makes available developed land with optimal infrastructure and necessary processes to support other similar businesses that require fast order fulfilment.
As e-commerce business in the region matures, EZDubai offers options for large international players to set up combined regional and national hubs.
