Middle East logistics: high opportunity in a complex region

Logistics Management has a new article that outlines why the Middle East is a booming regiong for logisitics and supply chain services. At least, that is the conclusion of a recent study released by the research firm – Transport Intelligence.

The logistics sector has been benefited as companies invest in upstream and downstream infrastructure projects. And, other opportunities are presenting themselves from investment in construction including tourism (hotels, amenities etc), reconstruction of Iraq, and transportation projects (ports, logistics parks and airports etc). In addition, the importance of consumer markets is increasing as GDP per head soars throughout the region.

That is the key takeaway from the article and I can personally attest to that having visited the Middle East not more than a few months ago on a supply chain consulting engagement. There’s a lot of oil money flowing in the region and that is being put to work building up infrastructure of all kinds. In short the area has been booming for a few years and could concievably continue to do so for a little longer. Current events, notwithstanding, this part of the world is pretty critical to the rest of the world and if there is something that a supply chain fits in nicely with – are the critical things that power/drive the rest of the world.
