Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 14 May 2018: 

Access World Logistics L.L.C. – a joint venture between RHS Group, Dubai and Switzerland-based Access World, inaugurated a state-of-the-art 3rd party logistics & warehousing facility on Wednesday, 09 May 2018 in the Jebel Ali Free Zone. The facility, with a storage capacity in excess of 100,000 freight tons of multiple products, has a 15,200 m2 covered warehouse with Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) racking systems as well as bulk-stowage space, and air-conditioned (220C') as well as ambient-temperature warehousing space, plus an open-storage yard of about 7,500 m2. The fast-track project was completed in less than 10 months from the ground-breaking, which was held in July 2017. The logistics company is also in the process of commissioning a 1 MWp roof-top PV Panel system to meet most of its power requirements through solar energy.
 
The event was attended by dignitaries from DP World, Dubai Customs, the London Metal Exchange, Commercial Bank of Dubai, clients, key members from the logistics fraternity, contractors, consultants, service providers, as well as senior management of Access World & RHS Group. Following the customary ribbon-cutting, the 120 odd guests toured the facility, built over a 40,000 m2 plot, with a total investment of about AED40 million.
 
The welcome address was delivered by Mr Peter M. Waszkis – CEO, Access World, following which, a felicitation ceremony was held to honour DP World, Dubai Customs, the LME and project engineers/supervisors who managed the high quality and incident-free project. 
 
During his welcome address, Mr Peter M. Waszkis said that “we have grown from a small localized family-owned company in the 1930s, to a global organization spanning 25 countries, over 100 warehouses and a 1000+ strong workforce. Today, we are part of London Stock Exchange-listed Glencore Group, the Swiss commodities giant.  Our organisation has strived to change, adapt, grow and evolve to meet the demands of the businesses and markets we operate in globally – handling, transporting & storing goods from the deepest darkest Africa to the Chinese Hinterland; from the Andes in Peru to the outskirts of Busan. Our vision is to deliver value to all stakeholders by providing comprehensive logistics solutions in a competitive, efficient and safe environment. Today is the culmination of a dream project, yet is just the beginning of a long and hopefully rewarding journey. We invite you to grow your businesses with us, as we aim to grow ours, with you”.
 
Access World (www.accessworld.com) operates a global network of warehouses, specialising in providing end-to-end logistics services for a range of commodities & general cargo, and are accredited by the London Metal Exchange (LME) as well as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME Group). Founded in 1910, Rais Hassan Saadi (RHS) Group (www.rhsgroup.com) rank amongst the leading commercial enterprises in Dubai, with their core business being shipping and freight related services.
 
Mr. Kishore Natarajan, General Manager of Access World Logistics, added that at this new facility, the company intends to provide the full range of logistics & warehousing services for non-ferrous metals, steel & OCTG, soft commodities, excise goods, wood products, paper & pulp, petrochemicals, industrial raw materials, project cargo, heavy machinery, automotive goods, FMCG and an array of general cargo.
