As the Covid-19 Outbreak Continues to Spread, Organisations Have to Prepare for Possible Impacts on Their Operations. With This in Mind, DP World, UAE Region Has Implemented a Rapid, Resolute Action Plan to Secure the Health and Safety of Its People and Its Services Across All Its Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Assets. This Will Keep Essential Trade Flowing in the Midst of the Global Pandemic.
Rigorously applied in close consultation with ports and health authorities, these measures will ensure that Jebel Ali Port and Jebel Ali Freezone (Jafza) secure the integrity and efficiency of the movement of vital supplies, such as food items, medicine and medical equipment required by the UAE and Dubai Health Authority (DHA) to contain the infection.
Our people are our most valuable asset and we put their safety and health as our top priority. The measures we’ve activated are focused on timely actions to prevent the spread of Covid-19 infection. Our containment programme adheres strictly to the requirements of the UAE Government, Dubai Health Authority, and the World Health Organisation. We’ve sent out a clear message that Social Distancing is a critical demand and not an option for our community to remain safe.
“As a frontline economic growth engine, DP World, UAE Region and its businesses are currently operating under the UAE’s Coronavirus Prevention & Response Plan along with Business Continuity Plans that are customised for each operating entity. We have taken every measure we can to keep trade flowing because our nation needs the goods we are moving, such as food and medical supplies, to face the crisis. We’re working closely with all our stakeholders, especially companies in Jafza that provide essential services, to spread the awareness that preventive actionsby individuals are as important as those taken by organisations. This is a time for collective action and we at DP World, UAE Region remain committed to playing our role in the UAE’s drive against Covid-19.”
