This year has highlighted the vital role that e-commerce and logistics play in the global economy. These sectors will be crucial for enabling other industries to prosper and for supply chain to be strengthened. Through this partnership with Hellmann and DHL Express, we will support Dubai CommerCity’s customers in their journey towards development and growth in the e-commerce industry.
