SEKO expands operations into Saudi Arabia
International logistics company SEKO has announced plans to increase its Middle East operations, with significant expansion in the Saudi Arabian marketplace.
The US-based company has launched offices in Jeddah and Damman, which will provide customers with a range of logistics services, including customs brokerage, warehousing, consolidation, multi-modal import and export services, and overland trucking throughout the Kingdom and other Middle Eastern countries.
"SEKO Saudi Arabia adds an integral element to our network of global offices," said William Wascher, chief executive officer of SEKO.
"With increasing volumes of imports into Saudi Arabia and exports to worldwide destinations in all modes, the office is well positioned to take advantage of this flourishing trade zone and will greatly benefit from the country's growing infrastructure. Future projects such as King Abdullah Economic City in Rabigh and Prince Abdul Aziz Economic City in Hail are creating logistics business opportunities that are extremely promising."
The offices in Saudi Arabia will initially be managed with a team of 18 employees, with a third office in Riyadh also scheduled to open during the second quarter of 2008.
