The World Logistics Passport (WLP) creates opportunities for business and governments to actively improve existing trading routes, and develop new ones, through the world’s first logistics loyalty program for freight forwarders and traders.
The WLP is helping to reimagine how goods and services move around the world, increase resilience in global supply chains and remove the barriers that prevent developing economies from trading as freely as they might.
It was established to overcome trade impediments that limit the growth of trade between developing markets, and builds logistical bridges between manufacturing hubs in Asia, Africa, and Central and South America.
To date, the WLP network includes Brazil, Colombia, Senegal, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Uruguay, Thailand, Mexico, Indonesia, Kazakhstan and Dubai, with more global trade hubs registering every month.
Our Core Belief
Trade is a valuable economic tool. It enables countries to meet their development potential and is the single best way of providing a public good for nations and their citizens.
Opening up and facilitating lower friction trade to newer markets provides these countries with an opportunity to unlock their economic potential.
The World In Which We Operate
The balance of economic power in the world is shifting from developed to emerging economies.
Within this context, COVID-19 - and the associated disruption in logistics and supply chains - has caused people and businesses alike to become newly aware of vulnerabilities in the global supply chain.
Growing out of this newfound awareness, there is an opportunity to think differently about how goods and services move around the world and an imperative to improve the resilience of global trade.
Developments in 2020 sit within a broader trend of economic power shifting towards nations and regions experiencing huge growth and dynamism across the global South.
Given Dubai’s long experience of trading with these regions as well as its available resources and geographic location, it is in a unique position to play an increasingly influential role in facilitating the movement of goods around the world.
