RSA-Talke to set up storage facility in Dubai
Dubai, June 16, 2013
Dubai World Central (DWC), the world’s first purpose-built aerotropolis, has entered into a deal with logistics group RSA-Talke to build a storage facility for non-hazardous and hazardous materials at the Logistics District.
RSA-Talke is a joint venture between RSA Logistics, a provider of transport and logistics services headquartered in Dubai, and Talke, a German chemical logistician based in Hürth near Cologne.
Built to international safety and quality standards and equipped with separate sections for chemical storage, the new facility will offer definite logistical advantages to the Gulf region with more than 19,000 pallet spaces, said a statement from DWC.
It is expected to be operational by the first quarter of 2014, it added.
RSA-TALKE will deliver a broad spectrum of logistics services for non-hazardous and hazardous materials, as well as a location with good traffic and transport links on the DWC grounds.
The facility provides direct connections not only to regional and international road and sea routes but also to Al Maktoum International Airport, the world’s largest airport.
Adding a new dimension to the core offerings of Dubai World Central, the project is expected to reaffirm its reputation as a lucrative destination for logistics companies looking to establish a strong presence in the UAE and regional markets.
RSA-TALKE benefits from the fully integrated logistics, aviation and business infrastructure of DWC as well as easy access to major road networks in Dubai.
Richard Heath, the director of Middle East & Asia at Talke and director at RSA-Talke said, “The production as well as the import and export of specialty chemicals is gaining in importance here in the Gulf region. The new storage facility strongly positions us to capitalize on the rapid market growth by taking advantage of the dedicated, hitech logistics infrastructure at DWC.”
Abhishek Ajay Shah, the director of operations & business development at RSA and director at RSA-Talke said, “In line with the sustained growth of the market, we support our customers by providing added capacity for high-quality and safe logistics services through the new storage facility."
"Moreover, Dubai World Central is strategically located and offers unique multimodal capabilities, which opens a wide range of opportunities to grow and further expand our business across the region," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
