TNT to bolster workforce in Saudi Arabia
TNT Express has announced plans to increase the workforce of its Saudi Arabia subsidiary TNT SAB Express.
The move is part of the logistics specialist’s efforts to bolster its market share in the Kingdom, with its main branch in Jeddah also being relocated to new executive offices.
The company recently announced a 30% increase in revenues for the first half of 2010 over the same period last year and has introduced two additional retail outlets in Jeddah, located in the historic area of Al-Balad and Prince Majed Street.
"Saudi imports have grown significantly over the past few years and have catapulted the country ahead of other leading Middle Eastern countries in the logistics field,” said Martyn Wright, managing director of TNT SAB Express Saudi Arabia.
“Our strong performance for the first half of this year especially reflects the growing opportunities in the Kingdom's delivery services sector, and we are adopting fresh strategies to become even more visible in this growth market. Our move to new offices will further enhance our image and leverage the strong global patronage enjoyed by the TNT brand," he added.
