DHL chief meets top Cairo CEOs
Cairo, May 7, 2012
DHL Express CEO Ken Allen recently met CEOs of nine of the biggest companies in Egypt to discuss the state of business in the country and its future prospects.
The meeting took place during the first leg of Allen’s Middle East tour, which included a visit to the new DHL office in Cairo as well as a tour of its existing facilities.
Allen was joined by executive vice president, Global Network Operations Charlie Dobbie and DHL Express Mena CEO Nour Suliman.
The CEO meeting was organised by Amcham Egypt and took place at the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza. The meeting was attended by nine of Egypt’s most prominent entities and a few members of parliament.
During the meeting the group discussed the current business scene in Egypt and the prospects of growth in the near future. Allen was joined at these meetings by Amr Tantawy, DHL Egypt country manager and Hisham Hassabo, DHL Egypt consultant.
“Egypt has always been one of the key strategic markets in the MENA region and a vital link to DHL’s global operations. Enhancing our operations here is very important as we further advance our footprint and presence in the region and strengthen our market-leading position,” said Allen.
Suliman added: “The region is rapidly changing and we will continue to invest in our business in order to keep delivering the most efficient logistics solutions to our customers.”
DHL Express Egypt is growing to become a major logistics hub in the region with over 1,500 active customers, five service centers and 32 service points; supported by 82 vehicles and a 24/7 clearance capability, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
