Dubai South, the largest single-urban master development focusing on aviation, logistics, and real estate, has signed an MoU with Sinotrans Limited, a subsidiary and single logistics platform for China Merchants Group, to establish its first Middle East logistics and e-commerce hub at the Dubai South Logistics District as part of its global expansion endeavour.
The signing ceremony took place in the presence of HE Li Xuhang, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai; HE Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South; Miao Jianmin, Chairman of China Merchants Group; and Song Rong, Executive Director and President of Sinotrans Limited.

Sinotrans was founded in 2002 and is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

At Dubai South, we align with the government’s vision of attracting foreign direct investments to benefit from the advanced services, state-of-the-art infrastructure and supportive government policies that Dubai offers to businesses and investors. The ecosystem at Dubai South is built to accommodate global players, and we will spare no effort in meeting the aspirations of Sinotrans to allow it to develop, thrive, and boost its growth plans.”
Commenting on the agreement, Song Rong, said: “The strategic location, advanced logistics facilities, optimal business solutions, and the capabilities of Dubai South Logistics District are in place to cater to our requirements and consolidate our objective of connecting with new markets from our first entry into the Middle East. We are confident that through our new expansion, the company provide direct and efficient logistics solutions to companies globally.”
