The delegation, which included senior officials from DP World, Jafza and Dubai Customs, held discussions with Vincent Hachez, Managing Director of AMI Middle East LLC, and other senior AMI officials, as part of Dubai Trade's ongoing customer outreach and service programme to assess and respond to their feedback on the various online services it provides.
The talks covered the electronic payment services Dubai Trade provides through its portal to facilitate online transactions between AMI Middle East and leading Dubai World entities such as DP World, the Jebel Ali Free Zone and Dubai Customs. The portal is also host to Dubai Multi Commodities Center.
Mahmood Al Bastaki, Director of Dubai Trade, said:
"Our meeting with AMI Middle East LLC has provided Dubai Trade with another opportunity for a self-evaluation of performance. AMI is a highly experienced freight forwarding group that has been part of Dubai's trading sector for a long time. As a major client and frequent user of our services, AMI's feedback is of great value for Dubai Trade. The meeting helped us learn about the client's specific needs and suggestions for service enhancement. Such interactions are vital for us to keep pace with the changing trends in the market."
Vincent Hachez, Managing Director of AMI Middle East LLC, said:
"Our meeting with Dubai Trade was very fruitful. AMI Middle East would like to thank Dubai Trade for this opportunity where we could discuss the online services and put forward suggestions that will help us in our business. As a leading group in the freight forwarding industry, AMI uses Dubai Trade's online payment services very frequently in its global transactions. We congratulate them for the excellent quality and user-friendliness of the portal."
AMI uses Dubai Trade's online platform for a range of services, including E-services at Jafza, DP World and Dubai Customs, covering logistics, air freight and surface transportation.
