The Abu-Dhabi based Mubadala Development Company and DHL Global Forwarding initiated a strategic partnership for the next five years.
With its unique logistics expertise and portfolio, DHL will support globalization and growth as well as deliver value across Mubadala Aerospace assets, their customers as well as Abu Dhabi as a whole, by aligning all logistics related processes efficiently and replicable.
“With this new strategic partnership we as DHL can demonstrate our expertise as an innovative lead logistics partner. Our solution enables the end-to-end management of Mubadala’s supply chain creating visibility across all assets in scope”, noted Claudio Scandella, DHL CEO Middle East & Africa.
Mubadala is looking to transform their inbound to aerospace manufacturing logistics (I2M) as well as their maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) material flows. DHL’s innovative solution brings this desired outcome by streamlining all logistics process flows of Mubadala Aerospace assets horizontally, leading to an efficient, effective and replicable modality. This way the need for customization of individual assets is reduced. The approach ensures continuous visibility, control and improvement.
Homaid Al Shimmari, Chief Executive Officer, Aerospace & Engineering Services, Mubadala, said: “Mubadala’s aerospace and information communications technology companies are operating at the heart of global supply chains, where timely and efficient delivery is critical to ensuring competitiveness. As Abu Dhabi’s aerospace cluster develops at the Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park, with new companies being established with our global OEM partners as well as the expansion of our current businesses, a robust supply chain supported by DHL, will be an essential part of future success.”
This strategic partnership is designed to bring optimized logistics, speed of change and cost reduction to all assets and customers of Mubadala across the globe in a multi modal manner. Approximately 66 percent of the cargo volume transported in the course of Mudabala’s partnership with DHL will be air freight.
