Ajman Free Zone (AFZ) has reported a growth of 45 per cent in its e-commerce sector since the beginning of this year.

The growth can be attributed to the authority’s diverse offerings, primarily warehouse solutions and the evolving e-commerce sector in the UAE, official news agency WAM reported. Warehousing solutions, which are at the core of AFZ’s operations, are designed to fill logistical gaps.

Additionally, the dedicated logistics cluster also benefits e-commerce businesses by providing access to end-to-end warehousing capabilities, the statement said.

Ali AlSuwaidi, director general of AFZ, said, “The e-commerce sector has been integral to our success, especially considering its rapid growth in the country. AFZ recognises the importance of having advanced logistics facilities installed in strategic locations for broad outreach and market penetration, to facilitate e-commerce growth. The positive results reflect our strategic approach and guidelines to developing this industry and attracting more businesses with our e-commerce hub, advanced range of offerings, and other value-added services.”

The free zone’s partnerships with major entities, such as Ajman Chamber, Ajman Port, Noon, and banking institutions further facilitate the ease of doing business in the UAE.

Last month, the freezone signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Zajel, a company specialising in logistics and transport.
AFZ also registered a 4 per cent year on year growth in 2021, registering 1,792 new companies.
