September 3, 2014 – Globe Express Services (GES), one of the region’s leading logistics companies, has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Etihad Rail , the developer and operator of the UAE’s national railway network.
GES has had an impressive growth in the region, especially in the UAE where its growth has been attributed to key developments such as the expansion of Jebel Ali operations and the opening of a new office in Abu Dhabi.
The company has also had a strong presence in Saudi Arabia and with its direct operations in Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam, GES will utilise Etihad Rail ‘s 1,200 km network to further develop its market leading position.
Once completed, Etihad Rail network will extend across the UAE, connecting the Emirates to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Oman. The railway will run from Ghweifat to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and the Northern Emirates, with major connecting points including Al Ain and Madinat Zayed. More info
