Al-Futtaim Logistics to create 200 Dubai jobs in 2015
Dubai-based Al-Futtaim Logistics has revealed significant growth plans for next year in an interview with Logistics Middle East magazine.
Finance manager and acting managing director Raman Kumar spoke about the company's outlook for 2015, stating that it will expand into Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, East Africa and Egypt in 2015, while also investing in talent closer to home.
He commented: “In our Dubai expansion, we are looking to recruit 200 people [next year] across the board, from warehouse operatives to the management team. We are hungry for expansion and business growth.”
The annoucement cements Kumar's comments in April to Logistics Middle East about the company's ambitions. When collecting the award for Logistics Manager of the Year at the eight annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATAs) in April, he stated that Al-Futtaim Logistics wanted to grow into "a big regional player".
Kumar's interview will appear in full in the January 2015 issue of the magazine.
