Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) has opened the “Jafza Bridge” for traffic, linking Jafza North and Jafza South across Sheikh Zayed Road, the zone said in a statement on Saturday.

The bridge, built in collaboration with the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), will make it easier to move goods between Jebel Ali Port and Free Zone and Al Maktoum International Airport.

DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmad bin Sulayem said: “The DP World group continues to attract more foreign investments and maintain the competitiveness of the port and the free zone globally with focus on innovative development of the global supply chain to strengthen the country’s position as a regional and global business hub, facilitate trade movement and open up new markets for companies operating from the Free Zone in Dubai.”

Bin Sulayem said that the Dubai Logistics Corridor reduces the time taken for moving cargo between land, sea and air to less than an hour, shortens the distance and eases traffic congestion, ultimately leading to reduced carbon emissions. Additionally it reduces the cost of logistics and transport and plays a significant role in enhancing trade movement, linking Dubai with the world and facilitating DP World customers’ easy access to their target markets.
