Rapid growth of Saudi industrial & trading bases boosts demand for logistics services
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's successful economic diversification has led to the rapid expansion of the domestic industrial and trading bases and, consequently, increased demand for various logistics services. Local enterprises are now seeking advanced courier and express delivery solutions to optimise and manage infrastructure, processes and technologies.
As the largest Arab country in the Middle East with an estimated population of 28 million people and over 2 million square kilometers of land, the KSA requires efficient delivery services to support its various economic sectors. TNT SAB Express Saudi Arabia, one of the KSA's leading express companies and the local arm of express delivery services unit TNT Express, plans to grow its vertical markets in response to the burgeoning demand for high-quality delivery solutions. The company will specifically focus on key regional sectors such as oil and gas, automotive, information technology, electronics, industrial, retail and other sectors.
"Economic cities are being developed across the Kingdom to accelerate industrial growth, and this will mean greater demand for delivery services from all types of businesses. The cutting-edge technologies of TNT Express have addressed some of the most challenging logistical projects in the world, and now we want to broaden their use in the Middle East. We will focus on our vertical markets to further streamline the supply chain and ensure swift and reliable delivery from suppliers to end-customers," said Nael Attiyat, Sales and Marketing Director, TNT SAB Saudi Arabia
TNT Express was instrumental in optimizing Europe's express delivery infrastructure and is currently assisting the Middle East in adopting similar strategies for the specialized delivery segment. Its Saudi division, TNT SAB Express Saudi Arabia, has been a major contributor to this campaign. TNT Express fully owns operations in 65 countries and provides the widest range of time- and day-definite delivery services in 200 countries.
TNT SAB Express Saudi Arabia recently transferred its main branch in Jeddah to new executive offices in a move to enhance its market presence and capitalize on the global popularity of the TNT Express brand. It provides delivery network infrastructures for clients from the GCC, Middle East, Asia and Europe.
