Sharjah 2021 Transport & Logistics

Sharjah’s strategic location between Europe and southern Asia has enabled the emirate to become a central player in international transport and logistics networks. Its burgeoning manufacturing sector has the potential to increase import and export cargo volumes, leading to the creation of jobs. The importance of this was highlighted in the 2021 launch of the Sharjah Exports Development Centre, aimed at investing in and growing the emirate’s exports operations. Underpinned by several major highways and an expanding international airport, Sharjah has seen rising foreign investment and government spending on infrastructure in recent years, which is central to efforts to strengthen transport networks.

This chapter contains interviews with Yousef Al Mutawa, CEO, Sharjah Sustainable City; Charles Menkhorst, CEO, Gulftainer; and Adel Abdullah Ali, Group CEO, Air Arabia.
