Comprehensive solutions for global and local demand • single point of contact for the global network
(Berlin/Muscat, 8 December 2011) DB Schenker Logistics will establish a joint venture with long-time partner Khimji Ramdas Group in the Sultanate of Oman. In early 2012, the new company Schenker Khimji’s LLC is scheduled to provide comprehensive solutions in the fields of air and ocean freight, land transport, contract logistics and supply chain management.
“This new joint venture will contribute to seamless integrated services,” said Dr. Thomas C. Lieb, Chairman of the Management Board of Schenker AG and Head of the DB Schenker Logistics Business Unit within Deutsche Bahn’s Transportation and Logistics Division. “By strengthening our presence in this growth region, we make sure that customers from all over the world will get the same high-quality service throughout the supply chain. And our customers from the region will benefit from our global presence in more than 130 countries in the world,” Lieb added. Schenker Khimji’s L.L.C. will offer its customers a single point of contact within Oman for the logistics requirements and will help connect with their suppliers and customers around the globe.
Martin Hackl, so far the DB Schenker Logistics delegate in Oman, will take over the responsibility as Managing Director of the new company.
M.C. Jose, CEO, Khimji Ramdas Projects and Logistics Group said, “We have been in discussion with DB Schenker on this JV for some time. We are glad to have one of the leading global brands to associate with for providing first-class total logistic services to the Oman market. We see the market growing steadily with new ports and airports being established in different regions in Oman. This joint venture partnership will enhance our position in the GCC region (Gulf Cooperation Council) and it is an important association for Khimji Ramdas moving forward. Furthermore our business focus now will also extend to Project Cargo, Aeroparts, Cultural and Sports Events,” he added.
