Supply Chain Asia (SCA), a 12,000 member supply chain community which promotes the development of Asia’s supply chain and logistics
sector, recognised HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman, Dubai City of Aviation Corporation – Dubai World Central with the
Supply Chain Visionary of the Year award in Hong Kong.
“This award is recognition of Dubai’s leadership in providing innovative solutions to the transportation and supply chain industry’s evolving
development strategy, and to the people who have made this dream come true,”
said Sheikh Ahmed.
The Supply Chain Asia Logistics Awards recognises the development of the transportation, logistics and supply chain sector among
corporates and individuals. The awards are decided through an online ballot process of the Supply Chain Asia community as well as
through the Supply Chain Asia magazine readership.
“The fundamental objective of the awards is to recognize and applaud the logistics industry in Asia,” said Turloch Mooney, Managing
Director, Editorial, SCA Publications. “With the imminent opening of Dubai Logistics City (DLC) - probably the world’s first true multi-modal
supply chain platform in Dubai, Sheikh Ahmed was the obvious choice for the 2007 Supply Chain Visionary of the Year Award.
“His current role in the creation of what may very well be the future master blueprint for modern supply chain infrastructure is appreciated
“Sheikh Ahmed’s vision is the perfect metaphor for the ongoing convergence of supply chain services and infrastructure into an integrated
whole, and demonstrates his deep understanding of the forces of globalisation and the role of supply chains as a key determinant to meet
challenges and opportunities.”
Dubai World Central (DWC), the 140 square kilometre urban aviation, logistics and residential community under development in Jebel Ali, is
a pioneering concept in creating a business and trade hub with minimum transportation lead times.
