Access World Logistics, a joint-venture between the UAE-based Rais Hassan Saadi (RHS) Group and Switzerland-headquartered Access World Group, held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of their upcoming third-party logistics facility at Jebel Ali Free Zone.
The multi-product warehousing facility, scheduled to be commissioned during the second quarter of 2018, is being constructed at a strategically located plot of 4ha, with an overall investment in excess of AED40mn.
Peter M Waszkis, CEO, Access World, said: “Our vision is to deliver value to all our stakeholders by providing comprehensive logistics solutions in a competitive, safe and friendly environment.”
According to the report by WAM, the site will include a warehouse of 1.5ha, with an apex height of 13.7m and eaves height of 11.5m split into three chambers offering bulk-storage and ambient-temperature, as well as air-conditioned storage, with very narrow aisle racking systems.
Kishore Natarajan, general manager, Access World, added that the facility will be listed with the LME and the DGCX; in addition to non-ferrous metals, steel, OCTG, polymers, and other industrial goods, the company will provide efficient logistics solutions for soft commodities, FMCG/retail products, machinery and spares, project and general cargo.
