The high dependence of the country on imports to meet its food requirements has necessitated the development of cold chain facilities. In the review period 2014-2019, the UAE cold chain market has increased at a positive CAGR of 6.6% largely due to rising food and pharmaceutical imports, growth of the dairy industry, increasing number of modern grocery retail stores, government initiatives to reduce dependence on oil-exports and others. 

Competition Benchmarking in UAE Logistics Market Outlook to 2025: Driven by High Ease of Doing Business, Technology Enhancement and Status of UAE as a Trans-shipment Hub 

Levels of domestic manufacturing in the country have remained very low since 2009. On the account of this industries have majorly required freight forwarding services from logistics service providers during this period. This has left very limited scope for end-to-end logistics services in country. Moreover, small size of the domestic manufacturing has forced the logistics companies to serve the international markets in the recent years which have made cost effectiveness very important.

It is making continuous efforts to make imports and exports processes more streamlined. Additionally, government is restructuring the regulations and structures logistics sector government and opening the way for market liberalization and private sector participation. Expansion of industrial cities continues to offer opportunities for foreign investors towards developing the non-oil manufacturing base, warehousing & logistics segments. For instance, Pfizer opened a manufacturing facility in the King Abdullah Economic City in the year 2017. Non-oil manufacturing growth is facilitated by launch of National Industrial Development and Logistics Program (NIDLP) in Jan 2019 by KSA government. Various companies are investing in Special bulk trucks and heavy lift movements to diversify their Revenue streams and Operations. For instance, Bahri launched new dry-bulk carrier ‘Sara’ & increased their total fleet of dry-bulk carriers to 6 ships in KSA.
