One of China’s largest express companies, UDA Express, is growing its operations in the region by setting up operations at EZDubai, a dedicated eCommerce free zone in the heart of Dubai South’s Logistics District.

UDA Express, one of the world’s top freight-forwarding and logistics service providers, was founded in 1999. It controls 59 self-operated distribution centres in China across 3,835,000 square metres and more than 30,000 stores across 30 countries.

Last year, UDA Express achieved a market share of 16.61% in the national express industry, whereas its market value reached USD18.7 billion in the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

In his comments, Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, said: “We are pleased that UDA Express chose EZDubai as a home for its operations in the MENA region. In our pursuit to uncovering market trends, we work diligently to cater our solutions and facilities to meet our clients’ aspirations to allow them to develop and thrive in competitive markets.

“The setup of UDA Express will reiterate our prominent position in attracting international logistics and eCommerce players to conduct their businesses and boost the growth of the logistics sector locally and globally.”
