As part of its plan to take over the world, Huawei has opened its first logistics facility in the Middle East, to serve as a supply-chain hub for future project deliveries across the region.
Located in Dubai, the center will initially be focused on serving Huawei’s customers in the telecommunications sector, but by the end of the year, it will also include Huawei’s smartphone business.
“A strong industry chain is essential to the survival of any sector,” said Shi Yaohong, president of Huawei Middle East. “This latest logistics hub demonstrates how we aim to extend our footprint as a local company in the Middle East & Africa and to build a business ecosystem in which all participants jointly create value and share the benefits.”
The hub will enable the Chinese company to significantly shorten deliveries by around 30 days for ocean shipments and address urgent requests from its regional customers. In addition, the warehouse space will also give Huawei a more flexible supply chain by being able to locally house major equipment orders from across the globe.
Over the next three years, the company plans to invest an additional $20 million or more in the facility’s expansion.
