As part of the conference, Agility also hosted Pharmerging Expo, an exhibition for the stakeholders of pharmaceutical supply chain. The exhibition had 25 booths from airlines, shipping lines and airports, giving companies the opportunity to display pharma supply chain solutions.

SGK Kishore, CEO and Chairman, GMR Hyderabad International Airport (GHIAL), said, “Both the Pharmerging Expo and the Unbroken Cold Chain – Series II gave premium pharmaceutical cargo and logistics operators the opportunity to collaborate and exhibit the latest information and tools in the growing pharma business. Hyderabad International Airport has always been a preferred destination for pharmaceuticals with more than 60% of cargo being pharma products. GHIAL, as an airport operator, is committed to working with our partners to enable a robust pharma logistics value chain using innovative technology and digital concepts. We thank Agility for organizing this event and welcome all the industry players who participated.”

Agility to Manage Logistics for Carbon Holdings

Work will support Middle East’s largest petrochemicals complex

CAIRO – January 23, 2018 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has signed a memorandum of understanding to manage logistics at Carbon Holdings’ industrial facilities in Egypt, including construction of the new Tahrir Petrochemicals Complex (TPC).

Agility will work with Carbon Holdings, a midstream and downstream petrochemical and process industrial plant company, to transport plastic byproducts within Egypt and to customers abroad. Agility will also handle the distribution of chemical compounds, including low-density ammonium nitrate inside Egypt and the onward distribution to container ports for Carbon Holdings’ Egypt Hydrocarbon Corporation (EHC) business.

The 5 million square-meter TPC is expected to be the largest single-train naphtha cracker in the world and will be strategically located in the Suez Canal Economic Zone in Ain Sokhna, Egypt. During construction, Agility will collaborate with Carbon Holdings to optimize heavy lift operations for the project, including in-bound movement of containers, storage and equipment for construction.

Elias Monem, CEO of Agility Middle East and Africa, said: “Agility has extensive experience serving the petrochemicals industry with a suite of solutions across the supply chain, and a strong track record of providing specialized logistics expertise. Having handled over 1,000 mega-projects globally, our specialists are well-versed in the demands of high-value, turnkey projects and have extensive capabilities in global project logistics, fuel logistics and remote-site services.”

Basil El-Baz, Chairman and CEO of Carbon Holdings, said: “Once our state-of-the art facility is operational, TPC will significantly increase Egypt’s total oil and non-oil exports. Agility’s specialized logistics services will help us achieve our ambitious growth plans. Through TPC, we expect to be able to efficiently and effectively transport our materials around the world, given the site’s strategic location in the Suez Canal Economic Zone.”

Carbon Holdings develops, owns and operates a number of petrochemical manufacturing projects in Egypt. Once operational, TPC is expected to produce approximately 4 million tons a year of product and will be the first of its kind in the Middle East and Africa. TPC will consist of a derivatives unit, three polyethylene units, three polypropylene units, and associated facilities including a co-generation plant and water desalination plant.

Agility Opens Regional Logistics and Distribution Hub in Bahrain

28,500 sqm facility expands capabilities in key market

MANAMA, Bahrain – January 10 2019 Agility, a leading global logistics provider, opened a 28,500 square meter facility in Hidd to expand its warehousing, freight, transport and specialty capabilities and serve as a regional logistics and distribution hub.

The new facility supports contract logistics with ambient, chilled and frozen storage, as well as solutions for high-value cargo. It will offer secure records management and storage and turnkey logistics for Bahrain-based manufacturers in the fast-moving consumer goods industry.

Agility is a leading provider of cross-border transportation, owning and operating a fleet of over 200 vehicles. Agility also facilitates customs brokerage for a number of multinational organizations based in Bahrain.

Essa Al-Saleh, CEO of Agility Global Integrated Logistics, said: “Bahrain is one of our key operational markets in the Middle East, offering high-quality infrastructure and a diverse community of regional business players. With an expanding population in the GCC and an increase in demand for integrated logistics services, our investment in Bahrain will help us better serve customers in the region. The opening of our new facility is a testament to our commitment to this promising market.”

The new facility, which has storage capacity of 17,000 pallet positions, represents a $10 million investment by Agility. It follows expansion of the company’s overland fleet in Bahrain to support its regional operations.

H.E. Mr. Zayed Alzayani, Bahrain’s Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, said: “The Kingdom of Bahrain is undergoing rapid economic transformation and continuing to attract international investment, with the logistics industry playing a major role towards this. The industry benefits not just from Bahrain’s strategic geographic location, but also its growing infrastructure, established transport links and policies that are conducive to fostering business. The expansion of the regional logistics and distribution hub is a natural step for Agility, who have been steadily developing their operations in Bahrain since 2003.”

A recent World Bank report estimates that Bahrain’s economy will grow by 2.6 percent in 2019, driven by higher oil production and mega projects. In 2017, the total value of foreign direct investment (FDI) reached $733 million, with the share of transport and logistics being 10 percent.

Mr. Khalid Al Rumaihi, Chief Executive of the Bahrain Economic Development Board, said: “Bahrain offers the lowest setup and operating costs for a logistics business with cost savings of 30 to 40 percent compared to the rest of the GCC. This has encouraged several companies to utilize our ports and free zones in order to set up businesses and access the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the Arab world. Agility’s investments in the local logistics industry are testament to the business confidence that Bahrain provides.”

Agility’s Carbon Measurement Tool Certified by the Carbon Trust

Certification gives customers opportunity to accurately offset estimated CO2 emissions

KUWAIT CITY – October 17, 2018 – The Carbon Trust, an independent expert in sustainable strategies and technologies, has validated the methodology and processes that Agility uses to generate carbon footprint reports for logistics customers.

The Carbon Trust’s assurance allows Agility to demonstrate that its carbon reporting methodology and processes comply with the organization’s reporting guidance for transparency and accuracy. To receive assurance, Agility developed a methodology to ensure the accurate monitoring, quantifying and reporting of CO2 emissions data from the movement of customer cargo.  This methodology was audited extensively and approved by the Carbon Trust, and it has now been incorporated into Agility’s carbon reporting processes.

Agility has been providing free carbon footprint reports to customers since 2009, enabling them to track and reduce the amount of CO2 emissions created in their supply chains. With the Carbon Trust assurance, Agility’s customers can now use the free CO2 reports to offset emissions resulting from the transportation of their shipments. This information is also available to small and medium-sized logistics customers (SMEs) using Shipa Freight, the online freight service powered by Agility. Shipa Freight customers will get free CO2 emissions estimates for their shipments when they receive quotes and invoices.

Frank Clary, Agility’s Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility, said: “Agility and others in the logistics industry are determined to address the challenge of climate change. The Carbon reporting that is validated by an internationally recognized expert such as the Carbon Trust is a key part of this. Armed with accurate information, our customers can understand their carbon footprint and take steps to create cleaner, and in some cases zero-emission supply chains by offsetting reported CO2 emissions.”

Clary said that for the first time SMEs can also make use of carbon-estimating technology to scrutinize their supply chains and choose shipment options that reduce their emissions. “Shipa Freight, our online freight platform, provides SME customers with this information even at the quote stage. That helps them make informed, accurate decisions for their business and the environment.”

Hugh Jones, Managing Director, the Carbon Trust, said: “Companies are starting to pay a lot of attention to the carbon emissions in their supply chains, especially in areas with the highest impacts such as logistics. By taking a best practice approach to emissions measurement, Agility is able to meet this demand by supplying its customers with accurate, credible data which they can rely on to understand, manage and offset carbon emissions. At the same time, Agility’s Carbon Trust-assured measurement should unlock new opportunities, demonstrating Agility’s competitive advantage in offering carbon cutting solutions, which are often synonymous with efficiency and effective cost savings.”

Agility uses sustainable business practices in its own operations and works with customers and suppliers to develop and adopt sustainable practices. EcoVadis, an independent organization that evaluates and rates corporate sustainability programs, recently ranked Agility in the top 4 percent in environmental performance in its industry.
