Ports were an integral part of Dubai's transport systems from its inception. It is one of the major sites for cargo and logistics operations as it supports a large number of companies transporting various commodities for commercial purposes.
There are various operating modes of Cargo and Logistics Dubai from the motor vehicle to the different fleet operators. Most of these modes are based on charter by Dubai companies.
Ports are managed by Port Shepstone, which has its headquarters at Dubai Airport. The approach is like that of Dubai Airport. A wide range of goods such as fuel, gasoline, chemicals, food and beverages, passenger and cargo shipping, warehousing and inventory are transported to and from ports and around the city through the use of this system.
