The Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC) today announced its new corporate identity based on three basic principles: "Global, Sustainability and Communication".
Designed in the form of a globe, the new logo features three main colours representing the areas supervised by the corporation - gold symbolising sand, blue representing water and white representing space.

The new logo represents our aspirations for the future and the next stage in our journey of excellence. Based on three elements: Global, Sustainability and Communication, the new corporate identity reflects the vision of our leadership and the strategic priorities of the Dubai government.”
"The elements and components of our new logo are inspired by our leadership’s vision to strengthen Dubai's position at the forefront of global efforts to enhance sustainable development. The Corporation provides services across the emirate, including in free zones and special development zones, as well as coastal areas and Dubai’s waters. “Our customs services play a key role in enhancing security as well as economic and commercial growth,” Bin Sulayem added.
