Schneider Electric has opened a new Smart Distribution Center in Dubai, the first in the region and the latest addition to its growing worldwide network of smart operations facilities.
These centers feature innovative digital technologies that can be leveraged to support a host of industries as they pursue their path toward greater integration and digitization.
The SDC is a model for industrial digitization, supporting the development of the UAE’s national Industry 4.0 agenda as it works towards a future based on harnessing the power of the Industrial Internet of Things and Smart Manufacturing. This is Schneider Electric’s sixth SDC launched in 2019, following inaugurations in Australia, China, Brazil, France and India.
SDCs are fundamental to Schneider Electric’s Tailored Sustainable Connected 4.0 supply chain digital transformation where the company leverages its EcoStruxure platform and architecture across its supply chain operations to deliver end-to-end integration and visibility to improve performance.
Schneider Electric has a 30-year track record of investment in the region, and in the UAE in particular. In that time, Dubai has become one of four international hubs for the company after Paris, Boston and Hong Kong. The digitization of Dubai’s SDC not only shortens its delivery time to customers, but also optimizes supply chain operations to provide delivery excellence.
Built on Schneider Electric’s cutting edge EcoStruxure technologies, the new distribution center will deliver a host of benefits across all layers of Schneider Electric’s logistical operations:
Schneider Electric said it is open to sharing knowledge with government agencies, partners, customers and learning institutions to further the UAE’s national digitization agenda and develop local talent.
