Dubai Trade shortlists nominees for 9th e-Services Excellence Award

Dubai, Jan 24 (IANS/WAM) Dubai Trade, the single window for cross-border trade and a DP World company, has shortlisted nominees for its 9th e-Services Excellence Award, (ESEA).

DP World operates multiple related businesses — from marine and inland terminals, maritime services, logistics and ancillary services to technology-driven trade solutions.

Winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony here in February. ESEA recognises organisations for their use of smart services in trade and logistics with winners selected on predefined criteria, including the number of mobile transactions on the Dubai Trade Portal throughout 2016.

Commenting on the announcement, CEO of Dubai Trade Mahmood Al Bastaki said: “ESEA has been very popular in the trade and logistics community, especially among Dubai Trade users.”

“It has also increased the use of smart devices to process business transactions, something we were hoping for when we launched the award in 2008 in support of the vision of our wise leadership to make the country one of the most advanced countries in using modern technologies.”

The 9th ESEA has five categories: Smart Services Award for M-Token, Free Zone, Payment Services, Clearance, and Shipping Services.

Additionally, two Innovation Awards will be presented for the Best Innovative Project and the Best Innovative Idea in the trade and logistics industry developed by individuals or organisations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
