By Areas (DAFZA, ZAFZA, DIP, DIC and Others): Dubai accounts for the highest share in the revenue of the cold storage market as it acts as a hub from where products are transported to other regions .Many vast tax-free trade zones existing there, amongst which Dubai Industrial Park is the largest by volume.

Majority of the domestic transportation takes place through the well-developed road infrastructure in the country as most places are quite accessible via road.

By Location (Domestic and International): Cold transportation to international markets accounted for majority of the revenue of the UAE cold transport industry due to the reliance of the country on imports for its food requirements.
