Shipping News Feature

KUWAIT - As political problems spread across North Africa and the Middle East this is one state which seems unaffected by the continued unrest in the region. Specialists in household and pet relocations worldwide, Move One Inc. tell us they have just opened a new 3,000 square metre warehouse facility to compliment their recently expanded office in the Al-Qiblah district. From here the global logistics company can ship freight to and from Camp Arifjan, one of the largest US Military bases in Kuwait and where all of the duty exemption approvals for cargo in support of the US Military are handled.

Last month saw a treble celebration in the country, in February 1961 the British formally ceded independence creating National Day and this therefore was the fiftieth anniversary. Twenty years ago Kuwait was liberated from Saddam’s forces and five years ago Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah ascended to his current position as Amir. As a token the Amir ordered a gift of $3,559 be given to every citizen.

Move One tell us that the strategic location of their new facility represents a significant advantage over regional competitors. Geographically, Kuwait is a key access point into both Iraq and Saudi Arabia, providing dependable road haulage routes into all GCC countries and the company’s staff of thirty are able to provide online shipment tracking, supply chain purchase order management, secure convoy transport and comprehensive warehousing services.
