AD Ports and SEG ENERA Group, one of the largest holding companies in Uzbekistan, are forming a new joint venture, ADL-Ulanish, that will provide logistics services across the Republic of Uzbekistan.
Through the new joint venture, AD Ports Group will bring its expertise in global supply chain logistics and advanced technology to address some of the unique logistics challenges faced by enterprises in Uzbekistan, which is a landlocked nation, surrounded by five additional landlocked nations. SEG ENERA Group will, in turn, contribute its regional expertise, and industrial assets, including warehousing capacity, alongside rail and trucking fleets. Through the joint venture, the two entities will serve not only SEG ENERA’s business needs, but also those of other clients in a range of sectors including, industrial project logistics, oil and gas, e-commerce, healthcare and pharmaceuticals.
ADL-Ulanish will offer a variety of services, including freight forwarding; warehousing and storage; customs clearance services; and the development of inland container depots and dry ports. Farook Al Zeer, Chairman, Logistics Cluster, AD Ports Group, said: “The launch of ADL-Ulanish provides us with a platform to extend our extensive portfolio of logistics services and expertise to the key market of Uzbekistan, which is located within a region that is primed for future growth. There is significant demand for freight forwarding and warehousing services in Uzbekistan, which has seen major economic expansion in the recent years, driven by important reforms and modernisation efforts.”
