The top performers in electronic services adoption in the trade and logistics industry were honoured on Wednesday at the sixth E-Services Excellence Award (ESEA) ceremony by Dubai Trade, the premier cross-border trade facilitator under Dubai World.

Held under the patronage of Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, the event took place at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, and was attended by Abdulla Al Saleh, undersecretary of the foreign trade sector at the UAE Ministry of Economy; Mohammed Al Muallem, senior vice president and MD of DP World, UAE region and board member of Dubai Trade; Mahmood Al Bastaki, CEO of Dubai Trade and more than 400 guests.

Mohammed Al Muallem said: “This celebration recognises the importance of Dubai Trade in empowering and enabling the supply chain through technology, which in turn drives trade in Dubai, the UAE and the wider region. We too are using technology to bring more efficiency for customers, with our new Container Terminal 3 under construction at Jebel Ali, which will be the world’s largest semi-automated facility. In pioneering large scale automation we continue to lead the industry.”

The nine winning organisations, whose representatives received the award for their top scores were: CMA CGM & ANL as shipping agent of the year for containerised cargo; Naif Marine Services Co as shipping agent of the year for general cargo; Kuehne & Nagel as freight forwarder of the year; E-Freight Int’l as clearing agent of the year; Arabian Automobiles Co as importer of the year; Cars 4 U as exporter of the year; Spring Valley Trading Co as re-exporter of the year; Brothers General Transport as haulier of the year; and McDermott Middle East as free zone company of the year.

Abdulla Al Saleh said: “The UAE has consistently looked at facilitating business through the effective use of cutting-edge technology. E-services not only allow the seamless transaction processes but also enable businesses to reach a wider audience and ultimately register higher volumes and profits.”
