Danzas building two facilities at DWC.

DUBAI World Central (DWC), the world's first purpose-built aerotropolis, has announced that Danzas AEI Emirates LLC, a joint venture between the Al Tayer Group and DHL Global Forwarding, has broken ground for its two new airfreight and chemical logistics facilities at the DWC Logistics District. The buildings are being developed at a cost of Dh148 million ($40.29 million) and are due for completion by November 2014.

Danzas' chemical logistics facility will comprise 12,000 sq m of multiple chambers capable of handling various classes of dangerous goods and another 10,000 sq m of space for non-hazardous materials. It will enable Danzas to better support and expand its customer base by offering more logistical options for hazardous shipments.

The Airfreight Operations facility will contain two fully equipped 7,500 sq m chambers that will integrate with airfreight movements to and from Al Maktoum International Airport. This will enhance Danzas' ability to serve its air freight customers by providing cargo-handling and cross-docking capability for both Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport. The strategic location of DWC will also provide accessible links to the intermodal transportation capabilities of the Jebel Ali sea port and the Danzas road freight network.
