The new London Hub is one of UPS’s largest single infrastructure investments outside the US.

“Every single day, we see evidence of a more inter-connected world of commerce. And we are delighted that UPS continues building upon its relationship with Dubai-based DP World to explore new international opportunities,” said Rami Suleiman, newly appointed UPS president of the Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa region (ISMEA).

“We are leveraging our work with DP World, a global trade enabler, along with UPS’s smart global logistics network to improve trade flow processes that our customers rely upon to expand their businesses globally.”

UPS is also working with Expo 2020 Dubai as the official logistics partner to help connect Dubai to the world and the world to Dubai. The theme of the UK’s participation in Expo 2020 Dubai is “Global Britain – Innovating for a Shared Future.”

“By using DP World London Gateway Logistics Park and Port, UPS will have a fast ‘global conveyor-belt’ directly connected to their own worldwide network,” said Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, DP World’s Group chairman and CEO.
