The partnership showcases the importance of rail networks as a key growth driver for the manufacturing sector during the GMIS week, which will be held at EXPO’s Dubai Exhibition Centre later this month.

The company will share its expertise in delivering faster, greener, more effective, and technologically advanced transport solutions to support the development of a globally integrated business environment, in line with the Abu Dhabi economic vision 2030 and UAE Centennial 2071.

Importance of rail networks to reduce supply chain costs

Etihad Rail will participate in the fourth edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (#GMIS2021), scheduled to be held at EXPO’s Dubai Exhibition Centre from November 22-27, where it will highlight the importance of rail networks in reducing supply chain costs, through reducing transport and storage costs, thereby increasing competitiveness and productivity in the industrial sector. The Summit will benefit from Etihad Rail’s experience in developing highly sophisticated and digitised solutions for freight movement and passenger travel, while positioning the UAE as a key link in the global transport and logistics landscape.

Discussions at #GMIS2021 will highlight green manufacturing, sustainable economic growth, policymaking, climate change and digital transformation of industries.

Driving industrial transformation

Omar Al Sebeyi, acting executive director of commercial sector at Etihad Rail, said: “Etihad Rail is committed to accelerating industrialisation, economic growth and social development in the UAE and across the GCC, while offering a safe and sustainable mode of transportation for both businesses and individuals in the region.

“As we build the next generation of transport and logistics solutions, we constantly seek new partnerships and collaborations with organisations who are passionate about enhancing the UAE’s regional and global competitiveness.

“We are pleased to partner with the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit in support of its mission to drive industrial transformation and economic progress in the UAE and globally.”

The partnership will also highlight the UAE Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology’s recent policy initiatives and programmes such as the National Strategy for Industry and Advanced Technology (Operation 300bn) and the ‘Make it in the Emirates’ campaign, both of which were launched to bolster the home-grown industrial landscape. Etihad Rail is a central advocate of local manufacturing, as demonstrated through its construction of two sleeper factories and its support of the ‘Make it in the Emirates’ campaign.

Badr Al-Olama, head of the GMIS organising committee, said: “Etihad Rail is transforming the wider transport and logistics ecosystem in the UAE and GCC. They are also at the forefront of developing cutting-edge technology and sustainability solutions to help industrial organisations enhance supply chain resilience and reduce transport costs. Together, GMIS and Etihad Rail will showcase the UAE’s advanced capabilities in transport and manufacturing, while highlighting the country’s potential to become a world-class logistics hub. The partnership will promote the prosperity of our nation’s economy.”
