Scan Global adds new country to network

Freight forwarder Scan Global Logistics (SGL) has announced the establishment of new locations in Riyadh and Jeddah.

The move gives the company an immediate footprint in the economic Central and West Provinces of Saudi Arabia as part of its strategic expansion plan. An additional office is planned for 2024 in Dammam in the East province.

The expansion, the company said, is driven by Saudi Arabia’s strategic location as a central gateway to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, which makes it an ideal distribution hub.

“Saudi Arabia is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and a major player in international trade,” said Global CEO, Allan Melgaard. “By establishing our own organisation and presence, we can better control our service offerings to local and global customers.”

The new offices will start with 20-25 employees in the first year and are expected to grow to 50 employees in the second year. Mohamed Afifi has been appointed as the new Saudi Arabia Managing Director.

“By carefully selecting and handpicking a team of highly skilled logistics experts with a deep understanding of the local culture and business practices, we gain a significant competitive advantage in the Saudi market with our own operations,” said Afifi. “Moving forward, we are eager to expand and uncomplicate the world of our customers.”
