Kizad signs Spinneys


March 10, 2014 | By RetailME Bureau

Supermarket chain Spinneys will operate a fresh distribution centre with a dedicated cold storage facility in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad)’s logistics cluster. The 50-year Musataha Agreement was signed by Kizad CEO Khaled Salmeen and Jannie Holtzhausen, CEO of Spinneys Dubai LLC. Spinneys has been allocated a 382,905 sqft plot of land in Kizad’s logistics cluster to build and operate a dedicated cold storage and distribution centre to manage food and non-food products and FMCG destined for both UAE stores and international markets. By signing with Kizad, Spinneys will benefit from the established industrial infrastructure and will have superior access to global supply chains and international markets through the nearby Khalifa Port and the rest of Kizad’s multi-modal transportation network.

Commenting on this new logistics signing, Salmeen says, “Spinneys’ facility in Kizad means that they will be able to get products to market quicker and more efficiently, in the UAE and internationally. This is a boost for local consumers and the local economy. Using our world-class Khalifa port to reach target markets with greater efficiency will help Spinneys to not only grow its business reach and potential in the UAE but also in the GCC and other markets.”

“Spinneys’ investment in Kizad’s logistics zone will enable us to take advantage of the low-cost operating environment on offer. In addition to the direct benefits of setting up in the logistics cluster such as proximity to airports and ports in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and other major cities, it will enable us to get our products from international markets faster and more efficiently. And in turn our stores can deliver an improved service in the UAE and across the GCC making Kizad the right place to be for our organisation,” adds Holtzhausen.
