ALS Logistics Solutions says no evidence of slowdown in GCC logistics sector
ALS Logistics Solutions, a provider of automated cargo handling systems, says the last 12 months have been particularly busy for the company, despite concerns in the market of a slowdown.
“People always say that summer is the quiet period in Dubai, but ALS has instead seen a very busy summer period, leading on from a strong start to the year,” says Alexandra Deeva, marketing director, ALS.

“In 2017 and 2018 we secured and completed a number of key projects, including the fully-automated cargo terminal in Muscat and Salalah,” she adds.
The fully automated facility will support national flag-carrier Oman Air’s continuing expansion and is expected to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
It comes complete with a proven IT software and hardware system for material handling and with what ALS describes as “an easy to operate, state-of-the-art man-machine interface”.
“In addition we have also completed the third expansion for the Dubai Duty Free warehouse, a fully-automated pharmaceutical warehouse in Riyadh and several more in Europe,” says Deeva.
ALS has also won several automated car park projects as well, which it will be handling over later in 2018 and 2019, with several more expected to be announced soon.
“Our market is very niche, logistics is a very sophisticated market, requiring unique strategies to stay ahead of the competition, which is very active,” says Deeva.
