COUNTRY UPDATES

United Arab Emirates: Dubai

Restrictions on domestic road freight have been lifted with the exception of light vehicle to and from Abu Dhabi and Al Ain , that have reduced the spike in demand for local distribution. Ports are operating as normal and not facing congestion or delays. Ocean freight capacity continues to be constrained, compounded by blank sailings and booking confirmation delays, which are expected to persist over the coming months.

Emirates Airlines has announced an increase in passenger flights to a select number of destinations, starting from 23 June. Furthermore, Dubai will also be welcoming international tourists from 7 July. This increase in commercial flights will have a positive impact on airfreight capacity. Emirates Sky Cargo has relocated their warehousing operations and freighter hub from Dubai World Central to Dubai International Airport (DXB). However, they will continue to accept and deliver shipments with their ground-handling partner DNATA at DWC. DNATA DXB have implemented shorter working hours for acceptance of general cargo Export & Import from 0600hrs to 1800hrs. Currently, all government authorities offices are now open and fully functional.
