Dubai South, dnata sign deal for cargo handling


Dubai South, the largest single-urban master development focusing on aviation, logistics and real estate, is collaborating with dnata, one of the world’s largest air services providers offering ground handling, cargo, and travel.

“The collaboration aims to enable a digitally driven gate control mechanism for shipments at the cargo handling terminals at Dubai South’s premises, which will be completed in less than a minute,” says a release from Dubai South. “Companies based at the Logistics District freezone and mainland as well as movers who transport goods to other ports will benefit substantially.”

The collaboration involves the integration of Masary, an e-gate pass system by Dubai South, with dnata’s appointment & dock management, a system used by dnata’s clients to apply for appointments to access the free zone for the loading and off-loading of shipments, the release said. “This will ensure a seamless, paperless experience for customers entering and exiting Dubai South gates under dnata’s designated appointment system for goods movement, which will enable faster procedures for customers at the gates, emphasising their satisfaction.”

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO, Logistics District, Dubai South says: “At Dubai South’s Logistics District, we are dedicated to providing our clients with efficient and intelligent operational solutions, ensuring the uninterrupted flow of goods. This partnership with dnata will enable us to expand our range of services, promote optimal practices and establish a tech-driven, dynamic ecosystem, allowing our clients to flourish in this highly competitive market.”

Guillaume Crozier, Senior Vice President, UAE cargo, dnata, adds: “We are delighted to offer our partners more value by implementing another innovative solution across our Dubai operations. This joint initiative will further streamline cargo processes by enabling the seamless transmission and integration of our data into Dubai South Smart Gate application and the Dubai Airport free zone’s system, and our customers will enjoy even better services and quicker turnaround. We will continue to invest in the latest digital technologies and automation to provide the best possible services to our customers.”
