The new services will benefit Dubai’s trade and logistics sector by providing speed and accuracy in logistics and supply chain management, allowing existing users to enhance profitability and grow their operations. Dubai Trade has designed the interface of the app to be simple to use on smart phones, in line with the Smart Dubai initiative to transform Dubai into a smart city with seamless and technologically accessible services.
LogiGate can also be accessed online at www.logiGate.ae. The app offers a virtual market that enables carriers to source cargo and land transportation services with ease. Cargo owners can select the best rates from several registered transportation companies, tracking their shipment using GPS in addition to processing their payments online through Dubai Trade’s secured e-Payment gateway “Rosoom”. Other benefits for transporters include securing revenues through an online payment feature, receiving real-time notifications for new job opportunities and biding for jobs to maximise profits.
LogiGate said it will soon roll out a smart service connecting warehouse owners and warehousing service providers with customers seeking storage space for their cargo, allowing them to book online or through the mobile app. Both “LogiGate Transport” and “LogiGate Warehousing” help customers fill idle capacities and enhance operational efficiency.
“The LogiGate platform develops Dubai’s trade infrastructure, particularly in the areas of import, storage and export by land and sea. It also supports the UAE’s economic capabilities in line with the country’s National Agenda and the UAE Vision 2021 that aim to enhance the country’s economy,” said Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs & Free Zone Corporation.
