Shipping to, from and within the Middle East

Bouncing back from the global economic crisis that peaked in 2008, the Middle East has seen a boom in exports and a notable increase in imports of luxury items, such as cars, electronics and clothing, driven by increased consumer spending.

In addition, huge investment in infrastructure and industrial projects across the region, by both governments and the private sector, is creating exciting opportunities for global companies.

With 18 offices and 8 subagencies located across the Middle East, we offer comprehensive and regular services, providing you with a fast and reliable connection to your key markets and trading partners in the region and around the globe.

Intermodal services

Shipping is not just about ships. Most cargo also needs to be transported inland, often at both ends of its journey. That’s why we offer extensive intermodal services to connect you with key inland locations across the Middle East and the world.

If you wish, we can even take care of your cargo for its entire journey, from pick up through to delivery.

Local expertise

Whether you need to import or export, our team of local and international specialists work together to ensure you get the optimal shipping solution for your cargo – whatever its destination.
