Welcome to the first edition of Logistics Middle East’s Power 25 List – a detailed ranking of the region’s most influential executives from the warehousing and transportation sector.

Whether its power, influence or success that has driven their ambitions, our special report includes 25 of the Middle East’s most influential figures. Together, these decision makers are representative of an elite community that continues to play an important role in the success and growth of the regional logistics sector.

So who is featured in this year’s list? Taking the top spot is Fadi Ghandour, the outspoken founder of

, who provides an exclusive interview to Logistics Middle East. As you may expect, hot on his heels are a number of well-known CEOs, each gunning to make their companies the top in the Middle East.

You will also find some unexpected names – executives from relative newcomers to the industry, who have proved their mettle in a short period of time and have the potential to climb even higher in future years. And those that appear to prefer a back seat, but continue to hold significant influence in shaping the industry’s future.

We should stress that the list is subjective and rankings have been based on events in the past year. We accept that readers will have their own views on almost every position, so our apologies in advance to anyone offended by their appearance (or non-appearance).
