Digital e-commerce platform noon.com will build the UAE’s largest fulfilment centre in Abu Dhabi as part of an anchor investment into the emirate’s fast-growing e-commerce space.

The 252,000 square metre facility is the result of a partnership between the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) and noon.

Equivalent to 35 football pitches, noon’s largest fulfilment centre in the country will enable the delivery of products across the UAE market and act as a hub to service noon’s smaller fulfilment centres.

Mohamed Alabbar, the founder of noon, said: “The new e-commerce hub in Abu Dhabi will unite millions of customers and thousands of businesses to fuel the UAE’s digital economy’s next phase of growth. As a local technology company, it is our duty to innovate, invent, and provide the optimal infrastructure for a digital-first future. The new hub in the UAE will accelerate not only noon’s growth, but also e-commerce in our region.”

Located at KEZAD, the facility will feature new automation technologies for storage, material movement, and sorting. Noon will hire more than 6,000 new employees, from entry to executive positions, for the centre.

ADIO is providing noon with financial and non-financial incentives for the development of the fulfilment centre.

Engineer Abdulla Abdul Aziz AlShamsi, acting DG of ADIO, said: “Abu Dhabi is delivering for the global e-commerce sector by creating an environment where innovative, ambitious companies can thrive. Noon’s partnerships with ADIO and KEZAD Group are significant in both scale and impact, creating thousands of jobs and new opportunities for the private sector to plug into an e-commerce platform and the emirate’s innovation ecosystem.”

Abdullah Al Hameli, CEO of Economic Cities & Free Zones, AD Ports Group, said: “In line with the vision of our wise leadership to establish Abu Dhabi as a global hub for trade and the development of strategic industries, KEZAD Group is building the infrastructure and portfolio of specialist services that will enable the rapid expansion of e-commerce and same-day delivery models in the region.”
