Dubai: in5, an enabling platform for students, entrepreneurs and startups has recently accepted logistics start-up, Qafila, into its incubation programme. Qafila is a digital age freight & logistics company designed to enhance customer experience, streamline operational efficiencies and provide around the clock customer support.
Atif Rafiq, CEO and Co-founder at Qafila, said, “Logistics in GCC is a $50 billion business and very inefficient when it comes to processes within Shipping and Logistics. I believe our platform can bring the industry into the digital age through transparent and efficient processes for operators across the region. We are very pleased to have been selected by in5 as part of its incubation programme. This will give us the opportunity and the space to create the platform that we have envisaged.”
Qafila’s platform, the first in the UAE in this sector, offers shippers instant quote, the convenience of online booking, management of your shipment and finally track & trace across your supply chain. This allows the shipper to create operational efficiencies, saving them not only time but costs in man-hours through a very transparent process. It is currently offering logistics support for FCL (Full Container Load) by ocean with plans to offer air shipments and LCL (Less Container Load) by March 2019.
Rafiq continued, “We believe quite strongly that enhancing customer experience and digitization is the key to the future of trade & logistics. In a region where governments like the UAE is pushing for Industry 4.0, AI and other smart initiatives across the country, saving time and money is important to success and growth of any business.”
Qafila is a digital age logistics company designed keeping in mind enhanced customer experience, offering operational efficiencies and round the clock customer support.
