Legendre-BinSulaiman combines regional expertise with international premium standards to offer top rank transport and logistics solutions to its customers, in the Middle East and worldwide covering over 182 countries. The company has set new standards in the logistics and supply chain industry by addressing the region’s needs for sophisticated and efficient offerings such as reverse logistics, it said.

The two groups also combine their specialties in various sectors, to name a few, water treatment, renewable energy, beauty and cosmetics, automotive as well as the world of fine art and events, and can meet the needs of transport, logistics and packaging.

Dr Omar Bin Sulaiman, Chairman of the OBS Group, stated: “We are pleased that this significant growth opportunity has advanced from a joint venture with Legendre Transport and Logistic Group. Our progress in the logistics industry demonstrates further the strength of our dynamic and versatile business model, enabling us to support and meet the local demands of our customers in their territories”.
