Scan Global Logistics continues worldwide expansion with new office

Logistics group Scan Global Logistics is continuing to expand globally as it opens a second office in recent months

Only seven months after opening its first wholly owned operation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) city of Dubai, Scan Global Logistics (SGL) has opened a second office in Abu Dhabi.

SGL says the move is another step towards enhancing its presence in economically flourishing global regions.

Strategically located in the Abu Dhabi Airport Freezone, the new office is equipped with a dual license of a Freezone and a mainland company for offshore and onshore requirements.

As the first logistics provider in Abu Dhabi, the new office is operational 24/7/365. For customers within verticals such as aid and relief or pharma often requiring urgent handling of shipments, the round-the-clock service hours enable fast customs clearance, even during night time.  

“By having customs close by, we can provide our air and ocean customers with fast inspections and efficient solutions in no time. Customs optimization can save considerable time and money and keep our customers’ vital supply chain running smoothly,” says Leslie Farnworth, General Manager, Abu Dhabi, who holds 23 years of experience in the industry.

“Our proximity to import and export gateways enables us to provide speedy turnaround times, especially for our customers in the Abu Dhabi area. And, in close collaboration with our sister office, we can ensure smooth operations for customers in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, including land transportation to our neighbouring countries in the region.” 

SGL offers a range of tangible, low-emission solutions to help decarbonize its customers’ supply chains. For example, customers worldwide can opt for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

“Sustainable logistics can provide customers a competitive edge. Therefore, we engage daily in helping our customers reduce their CO2 emissions, including long-term planning, allowing for choosing the most environmentally friendly modes of transport,” says Farnworth.
