IoSCM MENA is a regional division of the Institute of Supply Chain Management (IoSCM) in the UK which is an international organisation operating in different countries across the globe. The scope of the branch is to support the growth of the region. All countries across the region are investing heavily in the Logistics, Transport and Supply Chain environment such as; road infrastructure, airports, ports, ICT and HR. We have selected Dubai in UAE as our regional office because we believe Dubai is set to solidify its position as a leading international logistics hub, according to the latest analysis by Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Emirate’s strategic central location at the crossroads between important trading routes between east and west is its main competitive advantage. But by building relationships with emerging markets and adding value to the trade sector by developing its manufacturing base, Dubai can place itself ahead of competing global markets, the analysis finds. In recent times, Dubai has tried to leverage its strategic location through major logistics enablers, such as Jebel Ali Port and the new Al Maktoum International Airport. These projects are timely since they come in a period of increased trade between developing regions of Asia, which lie to the
east of Dubai, and Europe to the north west of Dubai, the analysis states. Demand for African minerals and goods from Europe and Asia, as well as the ambition of landlocked countries in Central Asia to trade with the world, is presenting Dubai with a number of opportunities.
