Schenker has opened a regional head office in Dubai to further expand its presence in the Middle East and East Africa.

The logistics company, which was previously represented by regional partners in the Middle East, has now established a joint venture in Dubai with the former BAX Global partner Al Naboodah.

"This will now enable us to offer our customers in Dubai complete high quality solutions from a single source," says Dr Thomas Lieb, member of Schenker's management board.

From its base in Dubai, Schenker will coordinate its activities in the following countries: United Arab Emirates, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea, Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tansania and Uganda.

It also plans to set up more country organisations in the Middle East and East Africa, to further expand its existing business.
