“Logistics is the backbone of commerce,” Agility Chairwoman Henadi Al-Saleh said. “But it’s complex, and that complexity is disproportionately difficult for small businesses to navigate. Small businesses often lack access to the logistics resources, tools and solutions that larger businesses have.
“Shipa helps close that gap, empowering small businesses to take advantage of the opportunities being created by the global digital economy.”
Agility operates in more than 100 countries and has 22,000 employees. It is the largest private owner of industrial real estate in the Middle East and Africa, according to the press release.
