Launched in 2008 to enhance Gulftainer’s service offering, the company now has operations spanning the Middle East, with operational headquarters located at the Sharjah Inland Container Depot (SICD).
Momentum Logistics is a fully integrated third party logistics provider, offering a complete suite of supply chain management solutions including transportation, freight forwarding, warehousing, logistics cities and container services.
Mr. Martin Roberts, Transport Manager at Momentum Logistics shares, "When Momentum Logistics decided to update its transport division fleet it began an in-depth review and comparison of market availability. The evaluation was detailed and extensive and the conclusion determined that the Scania option was the one that offered the highest level of return on investment for both Momentum Logistics and its customers. The total cost of operating the Scania vehicles was not the most cost effective in the market but has the added benefit of being supported by on-site maintenance from local company Al Shirawi Enterprises, leaving Momentum Logistics to concentrate on its core business. In addition the agreement has a 5 year buy back guarantee included, allowing the company to maintain close control on the cost of operations to achieve productivity and ROI targets. The Scania vehicles are fitted with engines that comply with the European emission standards. This means Momentum Logistics ensures emission standards stay in advance of any regulations in the countries in which we currently operate and ensures we maintain and exceed the sustainable environmental standards set wihin Momentum Logistics and the wider Gulftainer Group of Companies."
"Momentum Logistics has been delighted with performance of the vehicles that have been incorporated into the fleet. Based on our experience of Service and aftercare of the Scania vehicles, we will continue to upgrade the fleet through our partnership with Al Shirawi Enterprises."
