Dubai: Dubai Customs is still helping with the delivery of relief shipments from the International Humanitarian City (IHC). This helps the UAE’s efforts to provide aid to countries in need.
Their simplified clearance procedures have had a significant impact on the rapid deliveries of humanitarian aid and relief goods from Dubai to the most affected areas in the world.
In this spirit, the Dubai Logistics City Customs Inspection Center held a meeting with the International Humanitarian City to discuss further easing procedures related to the movement of relief shipments all over the globe.
The meeting was attended by Mr. Sami Essa, Senior Manager of Dubai Logistics City Inspection Centre, Mr. Abdul Basit Al Marzouqi, manager of Dubai South Operations, Mr. Boran Najm, head of Logistics Operations and Mr. Jihad Abdel Moula, expert in logistics and supply chains.
“Dubai Customs is strongly committed to providing automated, smooth, and expedited clearance process for IHC’s relief shipments to ensure Dubai’s position as a global humanitarian aid hub and help IHC members deliver an effective emergency response action to a growing number of crises around the world,” commented Mr. Humaid Al-Rasheed, Director of Land Customs Centers Department.
Dubai Customs and the International Humanitarian City had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on eLink and cooperated in exchanging information related to humanitarian aid and stocks. The agreement builds on the strategic partnership between the two entities and the importance of cooperation among different authorities to promote innovation, information sharing, and best practices.
