Logistics Middle East’s 25 most powerful CEOs-Warren Erfmann

Logistics Middle East’s 25 most powerful CEOs-Warren Erfmann

The power structure in Middle East logistics has been altered by a recent influx of mergers and acquisitions, which explains the inclusion of Warren Erfmann in this year’s list.

Until a couple of years ago, the executive was a relatively unknown face in the region, but his profile was transformed in 2008, when South Africa’s Barloworld Logistics made its highly-publicised acquisition of Swift Freight, a leading Dubai-based freight forwarder.

As CEO of Barloworld Logistics in the Middle East and Asia, it has been Erfmann’s responsibility to ensure that Swift Freight was seamlessly integrated into his operations to provide customers with additional value.

Despite taking place in the midst of a global recession, the process was a success and Erfmann has since capitalised on a number of Swift Freight’s strengths, including its lead on cargo routes between the Middle East and Africa.
