having such a strong foothold in the Middle East logistics industry, it would appear a challenge for newcomers to establish a leading presence in the market.

However, it’s a challenge that Dubai’s powerful Mohebi family took with full confidence in 2007, following its Dhs1 billion (US$367 million) investment to launch a third party logistics company, headed by the fiercely ambitious Mohammed Mohebi.

Despite being in his 30s, Mohebi had a solid track record prior to his assignment with Mohebi Logistics, having established the group’s travel and tourism arm – Mohebi Aviation – in 1995, which is today one of the top travel agencies in the Middle East.

warehouse in Jebel Ali Free Zone South, which has attracted 70 multi-national customers, including Nestlé, McDonald’s and Danone.
