Dubai Trade, the single window for cross-border trade and smart trading solutions, has launched the LogiGate platform to enhance its online services for businesses in Dubai.
LogiGate provides users with two smart services – LogiGate Transport and LogiGate Warehousing – to manage transport on land and warehousing bookings, accessible both online and on iOS and Android mobile phones.
The new services will benefit Dubai’s trade and logistics sector by providing speed and accuracy in logistics and supply chain management, allowing existing users to enhance profitability and grow their operations.
The app also offers a virtual market that enables carriers to source cargo and land transport services with ease. Cargo owners can select the best rates from several registered transport companies, tracking their shipment using GPS, in addition to processing their payments online through Dubai Trade’s secured e-Payment gateway Rosoom. Other benefits for transporters include securing revenues through an online payment feature, receiving real-time notifications for new job opportunities and bidding for jobs to maximise profits.
LogiGate will also roll out a smart service connecting warehouse owners and warehousing service providers with customers seeking storage space for their cargo, allowing them to book online or through the mobile app.
“The LogiGate platform develops Dubai’s trade infrastructure, particularly in the areas of import, storage and export by land and sea. It also supports the UAE’s economic capabilities, in line with the country’s National Agenda and the UAE Vision 2021 that aim to enhance the country’s economy,” said Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation.
Mahmood Al Bastaki, CEO of Dubai Trade, said, “Our success in enabling seamless trade activities through our online portal is an example of the UAE’s leadership in smart initiatives. Dubai Trade launched LogiGate following the widespread success of its Tradeshield smart platform for cargo insurance, as well as the Rosoom e-Payment gateway.”
