In May 2023, Einride, a prominent player in electric and autonomous freight solutions, partnered with the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI). The collaboration aims to introduce Einride's extensive range of electric and autonomous technologies, spanning over 550 km in the UAE. As part of this deal, Einride will deploy 2,000 electric trucks, 200 autonomous trucks, and establish 8 charging stations with over 500 charging points. This strategic move not only signifies a significant milestone in the road freight industry but also underscores the sector's commitment to both sustainability and cutting-edge innovations.

In March 2023, the country inaugurated its national railway network, Etihad Rail, spanning an impressive 900 km. The network is now operational for cargo trains, connecting all the Emirates. The fleet consists of 38 locomotives and over 1,000 wagons, designed to efficiently transport a wide range of goods. The primary route of the UAE National Railway Network stretches from Ghuweifat, on the Saudi Arabian border, to Fujairah, traversing diverse geographical landscapes.
