Pelican Products has opened its first distribution centre in the GCC.
The US-headquartered portable lighting manufacturer’s latest logistics facility is located in Dubai, UAE. The branch will act as the operations base for its recently-expanded regional team.
Commenting on the GCC expansion, Piero Marigo, Pelican Products’ EMEA managing director, said: “With the new distribution centre, Pelican can now store inventory in the region to optimise customer service, improve delivery times, and make smaller shipments economically viable. And, with our newly-expanded sales and customer service team in pace, our company is well positioned to help accelerate our customers [businesses].”
In addition to the inauguration of its GCC distribution hub, Pelican Products announced the selection of Danzas Air & Ocean (DHL) as its third-party logistics provider.
Alex Spaans, EMEA director of supply chain and operations at the lighting manufacturer, said: “Danzas AEI Emirates is known in this region of the world for its expertise in transportation, customs, and entry/export documentation, which of course, will be of great service to our existing and new customers.”
