Agility records profitable start

AIRFREIGHT services provider Agility Logistics has reported a net profit of KD 7.7 million (US$27.8 million) for the first quarter of 2011.

“We are acquiring new customers, expanding our business with existing customers, and transforming our operating platform to execute more efficiently,” Tarek Sultan, Agility’s chairman and managing director, said.
