Excellent logistics facilities

UNHCR Dubai enjoys excellent logistics facilities. A seamless supply chain by sea and air is ensured through proximity to Jebel Ali, the Middle East's biggest and busiest seaport. From Jebel Ali, cargo vessels sail weekly to ports worldwide including remote destinations. Also, six international airports are located within a three hour driving radius, where charter planes can be deployed in 24 to 48 hours. Dubai's logistics services are renowned for their professionalism and cost efficiency.
