M.H. Alshaya shows off Mina Abdullah Warehouse
M.H. Alshaya’s Mina Abdullah Warehouse has played host to a group of Mechanical Engineering students from Kuwait University who visited the site to gain first-hand experience of logistics and supply chain processes.
The retail giant showed the 25 students all that goes into maintaining a successful warehouse facility and the technology used by Alshaya to maintain a seamless supply of goods to its stores across the country.
The warehouse serves as a central distribution hub for more than 350 Alshaya stores across Kuwait and employs more than 450 people.
It ensures that the needs of the different sectors of the business, such as Fashion & Footwear, Health & Beauty and Food, are met daily.
“Real-world experience is hugely helpful, and enhances our practical knowledge, in addition to the things we learn in class. Learning from an industry leader like Alshaya is always a great advantage,” said one of the visiting students.
The visit was part of Alshaya’s ongoing commitment to providing opportunities to the communities in which it operates. Other initiatives by the company include annual summer internships for Kuwaiti students, and graduate programmes for young professionals.
