The agreement was signed by QFZA CEO Lim Meng Hui, and President and CEO of Alfardan Group Omar Hussain Alfardan.

Alfardan Automotive’s regional center will be located in the mobility industries cluster in Umm Al Houl Free Zone, located near Hamad Port a greenfield mega port enhancing trade through the port and increasing the volume of goods passing through it. 

The center will cover an area of more than 67,000 square meters and will utilize the latest logistics systems and processes to import vehicles, heavy equipment, motorcycles, and spare parts to meet markets demand, as well as develop human capital.

“We are keen to enable local companies and their global partners to benefit from our offerings to achieve the mutual goal of bolstering Qatar’s position as a global and regional hub for trade,” Ahmad Al Sayed said.

President and CEO of Alfardan Group Omar Hussain Alfardan, said the logistical hub offers a qualitatively elevated level of logistical services, which will play an important role in upgrading the relevant trading sectors, more specifically the automotive one.

“We are proud to work together with Qatar Free Zones Authority (QFZA) in establishing this state-of-the-art automotive logistical hub, which provides a complementing platform to our diverse well-established trading and economic activities in the state of Qatar and beyond,” he said.

The mobility industries cluster in Qatar Free Zones has a community of leaders and innovators in the sector, including Gaussin Advanced Mobility, Zoomcar, ABB E-Mobility, Volkswagen and other international companies. QFZA expects more local and international companies from the industry to join them soon.

To best support investors, QFZA has created specialized clusters within the zones for specific sectors, including maritime, logistics and emerging technology, allowing companies in those industries to grow by providing advanced infrastructure and facilities.
