Strategically located in Dubai, Jebel Ali port is at the crossroads of a region providing market access to over 2 billion people. As an integrated multi-modal hub offering sea, air and land connectivity, complemented by extensive logistics facilities, Jebel Ali Port plays a vital role in the UAE economy.
