Dubai Duty Free Headquarters
As part of the ongoing Dubai International Airport expansion, a new 90,376-square-meter duty-free warehouse was constructed at Umm Ramool, on Marrakech Road south of Dubai International Airport.
The project consists of a three-floor office block for administration (9,500 square meters), warehouse and mezzanine (37,500 square meters), gates, ancillary buildings including a mosque, loading docks, dispatching and delivery truck yards, and parking areas for trucks and staff. The warehouse is designed around a material handling system with two phases: an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) and a mini-shipment system. The warehouse includes cold storage (ASRS) and cold rooms, coolers, humidifiers, strong rooms and X-ray machines, police rooms, and CCTV systems.
