Crane Worldwide Logistics has opened a new office in the “upcoming logistics hub” of Saudi Arabia.

The freight forwarder said its new Dammam office would offer airfreight, seafreight and logistics services.

The operation is strategically located in Al-Khobar, served by King Fahd International airport and King Abdul Aziz Port.

Saudi Arabia is seen by ourselves and many of our clients as an upcoming logistics hub. With economic diversification as a focus, commercial growth is paving the way for transport infrastructure development particularly at airport and ocean ports,” said Gerard Ryan, Crane’s regional vice president, Europe, Middle East, India and Africa.

John Magee, president and chief executive, added: “Our new operation in Saudi Arabia is yet another step forward in our commitment to our client’s business in the Middle East.

“As the major crossroad between Asia, Africa and Europe, having our own offices in strategic locations across the Middle East region, will provide us with the opportunity to expand the services and benefits we are currently offering our clients in other regions.”

The company also has its own entities in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi with business across a number of sectors including Automotive, Aerospace and Energy.
