Logistics firm DHL officially opened its Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (EEMEA) premises in Bahrain on Sunday.
The move follows an extensive expansion of the sales team and the centralisation of resources in Bahrain to allow the company to be closer to its markets and enhance customer response times.
A team of specialists has relocated to Bahrain over the past year from across the DHL international network. Operations at the new office began on March 1 and the facility is now fully functional with a total of 32 staff.
“It is a great pleasure to have our sales and commercial teams for Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa centralised in Bahrain,” said Sales Director David Wilson.
“As the Middle East is the biggest area in our region, and Bahrain has held a strategic position at the centre of our business in the Middle East for 30 years, it is a natural move to consolidate operations here.
“With an excellent transport infrastructure and a high-quality living environment, this move is popular with all.”
He said EEMEA was one of the fastest growing regions for DHL, which had a 40 per cent market share.
“With continued investment in people and facilities the company will continue to increase its market share.”
