Facility with chemical storage to open at Dubai World Central
Dubai World Central is getting a new storage facility.
The facility owned by RSA-TALKE is being constructed in DWC's Logistics District. It has separate sections for chemical storage and more than 19,000 pallet spaces.
It will be operational by the first quarter of 2014.
RSA-TALKE will offer logistic services for non-hazardous and hazardous materials. The facility provides direct connections not only to regional and international road and sea routes but also to Al Maktoum International Airport.
"The production as well as the import and export of specialty chemicals is gaining in importance here in the Gulf region,” Richard Heath, director Middle East & Asia at TALKE and Director at RSA-TALKE, said. “The new RSA-TALKE storage facility strongly positions us to capitalize on the rapid market growth by taking advantage of the dedicated, state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure at Dubai World Central."
RSA-TALKE is a joint venture between RSA Logistics, a provider of transport and logistics services headquartered in Dubai, and TALKE, a chemical logistician based in Hürth, Germany near Cologne.
"In line with the sustained growth of the market, we support our customers by providing added capacity for high-quality and safe logistics services through the new RSA-TALKE storage facility,” Abhishek Ajay Shah, director of operations & business development at RSA and director at RSA-TALKE, said. “Moreover, Dubai World Central is strategically located and offers unique multimodal capabilities, which opens a wide range of opportunities to grow and further expand our business across the region."
