Jafza showcases innovative smart services at GITEX

DUBAI,– The Jebel Ali Free Zone, Jafza, is showcasing an integrated package of services and smart new solutions for customers and companies during GITEX Technology Week 2016.

In line with the vision of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to transform Dubai into a Smart City, Jafza has introduced an array of ‘tech driven’ solutions throughout the free zone.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman, Chief Executive Officer of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, said, “We aim to transform Jafza into an ideal free zone through the development and use of the latest applications, becoming a global knowledge and innovation hub.”

iJafza is a new service provided on the Jafza Mobile App for incident reporting within the free zone to improve the community. Customers, employees, residents and visitors can now report environment, maintenance and security incidents through the app that is equipped to upload pictures and track locations for incidents. The service is available on iOS and Android platforms.

Jafza has also recently begun using drones to supervise construction sites to oversee work progress and technical accuracy. The free zone is planning to implement the Automatic Plate Recognition System, APRS, a long-range card reader with access control and high definition CCTV to register vehicles passing through Jafza gates.
