Sky is the limit when it comes to Almajdouie Logistics’ appetite for growth. Pertinently then, and in continuation of its path for growth, Almajdouie Logistics has initiated some key strategic developments in its plan to expand further within the Middle East and North Africa region(Mena).

“Expanding our footprint within the Mena region is key to our company’s development and sustainability in an extremely competitive environment,” said Oussama Abba, GCC general manager, while explaining how the company is consolidating its market position by capitalising on its assets base and expertise across the logistics industry acquired during the past five decades.

In order to structure its approach, the company has launched ‘Accelerate 2020’ programme – a strategic plan that sets the vision and direction towards a sustainable growth, continuing to invigorate its internal process change, especially, after the merger of all the company’s logistics business units under one brand name by the end of 2016.

This structural reform happens at a time when the region is still facing a challenging time. “This aims at generating synergies between internal functions, hence improving our operational efficiency and effectiveness and ultimately, maximising our company’s profitability without compromising on quality delivered to our customers,” Abba said.

“Throughout the past half century, Almajdouie Logistics accumulated immense experience and know-how that enabled us to provide tailored services across various industries. We fulfil our customers’ needs and expectations through our understanding of their supply chain models. Therefore, we will capitalise on the same success factors within the rest of markets where we plan to enter or consolidate our position,” he added.

“As Malcolm X once said: Tomorrow is already here, and the future belongs to those who prepare it today. Almajdouie Logistics did just that when launching its “Accelerate 2020 plan,” Abba continued.

The company, which is currently implementing the plan in all the GCC countries, will be offering full 3PL capabilities by the end of the second quarter of this year in all the Gulf countries.

Currently, Almajdouie’s portfolio includes, inland and overland transportation, freight forwarding, project logistics, warehousing, terminals handling, contract logistics, project management and engineering services.

Almajdouie Logistics is a multi-award winner: in 2016, it received two SCATA awards “Logistics Project of the year” and “Material handling Provider of the Year” in addition to the “Logistics Service Provider of the Year, KSA” by Frost & Sullivan. This year, it has won the `Supplier of the Year’ award after it was named as the national winner by Meed Quality Awards for Projects for 2017.
