Featured properties and facilities on GO DC to digitally reach broader audience across the Middle-East and Asia
Singapore, 14 March 2018 – Get GO Global (GO) is pleased to announce that GO has been appointed by the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), part of Abu Dhabi Ports, to accelerate the online marketing of the world-class warehousing facilities at the recently launched KIZAD Logistics City.
KIZAD Logistics City is strategically located and well-served by Khalifa Port and is within 1-hour distance to three international airports. The logistics city spans over 1.3 million square feet (118,965 square meters), equivalent in size to about 17 soccer fields.
Within KIZAD Logistics City, high-spec warehousing facilities are available for a range of business needs, starting from 10,000 square feet (1,000 square meters). Facilities can be further customised or expanded to suit specialised or growing business needs. Selected properties will be featured on the GO DC warehousing platform to broaden the digital marketing of KIZAD Logistics City properties.
Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “The rapid expansion of e-commerce in the region and same-day delivery models are reshaping warehousing needs. In addition, with roughly half of the population still under 25, this region is home to one of the world’s youngest and wealthiest populations and some of the world’s highest sustainable growth rates. We wanted to get ahead of the curve and provide a smart, on-demand, seamlessly connected warehouse hub for everybody, from e-commerce giants to small retailers and entrepreneurs.”
Mr. Au Kah Soon, CEO of GO said, “We are elated that KIZAD Logistics City’s world-class warehouses and facilities will be reaching a broader audience across the Middle-East and Asia through our GO DC platform. With the rise of cloud, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), social and analytics the data explosion is accelerating. This complexity and volatility are affecting logistics effectiveness, thus counting on the right technology platforms to provide the necessary speed and flexibility has become paramount. KIZAD Logistics City is part of Abu Dhabi’s impressive transformation into a major logistics hub serving East and West. GO is delighted that our technology platform with advance search and listing functionality will play a part in this pioneering effort.”
KIZAD is a 418 square kilometer industrial zone strategically located between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. With one of the world’s most advanced deep water seaports, Khalifa Port, and world-class infrastructure, KIZAD benefits from excellent multimodal connectivity via sea, air, road and rail networks to ensure easy accessibility to and from the Industrial Zone. Phase One, which is 51 square kilometers with an investment of AED 26.5 billion or $7.2 billion, was launched in 2012 and is now fully operational.
KIZAD is a cornerstone of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 which also highlights the drive to diversification of the economy in pursuit of sustainable growth less dependent on the oil and gas industries. By 2030, KIZAD will be expected to contribute up to 15% of Abu Dhabi’s non-oil GDP.
