Situated in the heart of New Dubai and serviced by two metro stations within the community, the JLT free zone is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, the main arterial connecting Dubai and Abu Dubai, and in close proximity to Jebel Ali Free Zone and ports, Al Maktoum International Airport, and Dubai Logistics Corridor.
If you are a commodity focused business, the main benefit of operating out of this free zone is that you will have access to industry-specific infrastructure. Furthermore, this is where the majority of commodity companies or their representative offices/headquarters are located. Another one of the competitive advantages is the strategic location of DMCC licensed companies which are found in JLT, on the Sheikh Zayed Road, near to the major ports and attractions.
JLT Licenses are granted for trading in non-commodities (finished products) such as furniture, equipment, office supplies, spare parts, clothes and electronics. Business providing services such as Marketing, Media, Advertising, Consulting, IT, Nursery, Management can also receive licenses. In addition, retail activities such as Grocery shops, Restaurants, Cafes, Beauty Salons, Medical Centers and Pharmacies can receive licenses.
