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

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

A well-known face in the Middle East logistics industry, following his stint as regional director of Freight Systems, Warren Jacob was appointed the chief executive officer of Transworld last year, with responsibility for expanding the Dubai-based company’s presence in the local market.

Shortly before his appointment, a US$12.25 million warehouse was opened by Transworld in Jebel Ali Free Zone and Jacob has revealed his intentions to support the facility by developing a portfolio of industry-specific products and services, while encouraging a greater level of interaction with existing customers.

Progress has already been made following a strategic partnership with Japan-based Suzue Corporation in October 2009, which resulted in both of the parties representing each other’s freight forwarding and logistics services in their respective operating countries.
