Transport & Logistics

Transport & Logistics

The transportation and logistics industry is key for many other sectors of the economy, because at present, it is a tendency for most companies to outsource the management of distribution and logistics to supply chain professionals in order to dedicate themselves to their main activity.

With the fallout in global oil prices, Saudi Arabia is charting a new direction towards developing an economy that is non-oil dependent by announcing a bold reform in line with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030. Commenting on this, Fabian Boegershausen, manager at Solidiance mentions that the reform would have long-term effects on the economic structure but also yield several short-term opportunities, such as the re-tendering of logistics contracts.
