UAE leads GCC in World Bank's Logistics Performance Index 2012

March 21, 2013: Barloworld Logistics, a leading provider of logistics and supply chain management solutions, has revealed that the UAE will remain a catalyst for the company's growth plans in the region after the World Bank ranked the UAE ahead of all GCC countries in its recently published Logistics Performance Index (LPI) 2012. Barloworld Logistics further pointed out that the UAE has been listed 17th in the overall LPI rankings, outranking other prominent countries such as Norway, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Italy and South Korea, thereby reaffirming the growing status of the UAE in the global logistics value chain. Barloworld Logistics has revealed that the World Bank's biennial LPI has been a key tool in charting the company's strategic expansion plans in the GCC and globally, providing key insights on the strengths and areas of improvements of all of its target markets.

Frank Courtney, Barloworld Logistics Chief Executive for EMEA region, said: “The World Bank's Logistics Performance Index 2012 clearly positions UAE as the frontrunner in the entire GCC region with its superior logistics infrastructure and tightly integrated value-added services and amenities. The development of Dubai World Central, for instance, is a game-changing achievement that firmly establishes the UAE as a leading logistics hub, and a catalyst for the sustained growth of the regional logistics industry. Our strategy is to complement the government's proactive efforts to build world-class logistics infrastructure by focusing on delivering integrated smart supply chain solutions that empower businesses to move forward with their expansion plans in the region. The UAE continues to open exciting opportunities for logistics businesses to grow and expand, and we believe that Barloworld Logistics' strategic investments over the years have strongly positioned the company to capitalize on the favorable market conditions.”

Barloworld Logistics' key competencies include all traditional supply chain and logistics functions, from demand planning, freight forwarding and clearing and inventory solutions, through procurement, dedicated transport services and transport management services and warehousing and distribution. The company's Middle East offices are equipped with clearance license, customs accreditation, corporate and sales & marketing office, operations, warehouses as well as contacts with shipping-lines and airlines. There are four warehouses having a total capacity of over 23,000 pallet positions that can store dry cargo as well as temperature sensitive cargo from 18°C to 40°C.
