Momentum Logistics, the Sharjah-based third-party logistics (3PL) service provider and subsidiary of international port management company, Gulftainer, has officially opened its new office in Erbil. The new office will allow Momentum to react more efficiently to the daily needs of its clients.
Erbil is the management centre of the Northern Iraq’s oil industry, and Momentum believes that it is essential for any premium service provider to be at the centre of where the main activity takes place.
“The opening of Momentum Logistics’ new Erbil office is an important step towards realising the challenge of providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ service where we can tailor specific logistical solutions to achieve maximum efficiency for our clients,” said Neil Young, Momentum’s Freight and Logistics Manager for Northern Iraq.
The new office will work in conjunction with Gulftainer’s other group and partner companies, particularly Demas in Turkey and South Oasis in Southern Iraq (Umm Qasr), to ensure that cargo can be delivered by air, sea or land from anywhere in the world to anywhere in Iraq.
Momentum General Manager Matthew Derrick added: “We are making good progress with our activities throughout Iraq and our aim is to deliver a complete package of services both to customers in general and to the Oil and Gas industry”.
This is Momentum’s fourth office to open this year, following those in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Zakho (also in Northern Iraq).
Since its inception in October 2008, Momentum Logistics has been focusing on growing and expanding its services, and this latest move is in line with its aim of becoming the global provider of choice for third-party logistics and supply chain management services.
