Company Formation in JAFZA

JAFZA is situated within minutes from the Dubai International Airport, the world’s top 10 busiest cargo airport, with the capacity to handle 2.7 million metric tons a year as well as being adjacent to Al Maktoum Airport, which is developing towards its goal of being the largest cargo airport in the world.
This logistics platform itself is impressive enough; however, Jafza adds yet another layer by creating a single, customs bonded area between Jebel Ali Port and Al Maktoum Airport.
JAFZA is one of the largest growing free zones, a thriving business center with over 7,100 companies from 120 countries around the world. Strategically situated, Jafza offers enviable access to the world’s seventh largest port, the region’s extensive highway network, Dubai International Airport and even the Al Maktoum International Airport that’s just a short drive away. Little wonder then, that JAFZA can offer the fastest sea-air-land trans-shipment, on-site customs clearance and access to a market of over two billion customers.
