The UAE has undergone a remarkable transformation, evolving from a logistics hub into a supply chain nerve center of global significance. Even during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UAE demonstrated its exceptional resilience by ensuring uninterrupted supply chains and averting any supply shortages.

With the distinction of hosting the world's 9th busiest container port, the UAE has become a crucial player in the maritime logistics sector. Over 2.4% of all ocean container trade transits through the UAE, reflecting its integral role in international trade and global connectivity.

Moreover, the UAE stands out as the sole country in the region to have a logistics service provider investing over $10 billion (AED 37.3 billion) in the global logistics sector since 2012. This noteworthy investment places the UAE among the top five overseas investors during this period, alongside renowned companies such as Amazon, AP Moller Maersk, UPS, and Deutsche Post.
