Work to start on Fujairah’s smart logistics city

August 2017

Fujairah has reached an agreement with Niras, an international, multidisciplinary engineering consultancy, to start the construction of the first phase of its ambitious smart logistics city project.

The agreement was signed in the Danish capital of Copenhagen by Mohammed Saeed Al Dhanhani, the head of the Emiri Court in Fujairah, the director-general of the Fujairah Investment Corporation and representative of the Fujairah government, with Karol Marcinkowski, the chairman of Niras, in the presence of its CEO Martin Pedersen.

The project, which will come up on a 68,000-sq-m area of land at a prime location, is set to be developed in three phases over the next five years, reported the state news agency Wam.

As per the partnership deal, the work on the initial phase will begin by 2018-end.

Pedersen pointed out that Fujairah was chosen for the project largely due to its strategic location near Africa and Asia.
