Give us a brief overview about your career journey?
I began my career as a programmer in Saudi Arabia in 1988. Later, I worked for various companies in the middle-east, while running this company as part time. Eventually, I dedicated myself full-time to the business, and it has been growing steadily since then.

We provide solutions for logistics companies, including freight forwarding, shipping, and land transport, courier and d2d services. The company’s client engagement approach revolves around serving a select clientele exceptionally well, backed by a lean team of about 10 individuals, including programmers and support staff. This strategy enables them to provide outstanding support, and it's the reason they have retained customers for over 18 years. This steadfast customer loyalty is a testament to its commitment to delivering top-notch support, as it firmly believes that without valuable support, retaining long-term clients would be challenging.

Do you have any expansion plans for the company in the near future?

Currently, the company is focusing in the middle-east due to favorable pricing conditions with minimal negotiations.
