Earlier this month Scan Global Logistics (SGL) opened a new office at the Abu Dhabi Airport Freezone, its second office in the UAE.
Situated close to the Khalifa seaport and Etihad Cargo’s hub at Abu Dhabi airport, the new office is equipped with a dual license of a freezone and a mainland company for offshore and onshore requirements.
Scan Global said the new office will be operational 24/7 and will offer round-the-clock service for shipments requiring urgent handling like aid and relief, as well as pharma.
“By having customs close by, we can provide our air and ocean customers with fast inspections and efficient solutions in no time,” said 23-year-veteran Leslie Farnworth, general manager for Abu Dhabi.
Farnworth added that the company will also work closely with its sister office to offer land transportation to neighbouring countries in the region. Scan Global also offers solutions to help decarbonize their customers’ supply chains, including the option to use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The new office in Abu Dhabi comes after the opening of the company in Dubai seven months ago.
