West Mids success in Mid East

[ March 5, 2015   //   ]

Midlands forwarder Independent Freight has notched up a string of new contracts in the Middle East. They include logistics for construction company Roodsafe which is building the King Abdullah Football Stadium in Saudi Arabia, a major contract to handle the international export and shipping for construction company Roodsafe and the international logistics for a major building project in Iraq.

“We are seeing a significant increase in our activities with the Middle East for both import and export,” says Jenny Hooper, Independent Freight’s founder and managing director. “We have built up a real understanding for the mentality of the region and the specialist regulatory environment in each of the countries involved. This can be difficult for many of our clients so it’s important that we have all the expertise to advise and support them and take the headache out of the process, making sure that consignments arrive safely and on time.”

Jenny Hooper and company director David Hooper joined a UKTI trade mission to the Middle East in November 2014 and this has led to a significant growth in business.
