Blue Water starts activities in Iraq

With a new office in Iraq, Blue Water is gearing up for further expansion in the Middle East

With the opening of its first office in Iraq, Blue Water is further expanding its operations in the Middle East. The global logistics company is primarily offering a wide range of transport and logistic solutions focusing on oil and gas, as well as renewables.

“We see an increasing demand for our services and the need to be closer to our global clients in this region. We believe local presence is key to develop ourselves and serve the logistics needs of our clients. It is a new country for us, however, we like challenges and finding new solutions to our clients in the more challenging markets”, states Peter Ehrhorn, Regional Director Energy, Ports & Projects Middle East.

Local knowledge through more than 25 years

Blue Water has been present in the Middle East for over 25 years and has over the years gained a strong expertise and know-how in supplying efficient solutions to the region. The addition of the Iraq office in Basra will strengthen the company’s presence in the region and growth journey. The newly employed local team is well-experienced in the local transport and logistics sector.

“We value having experienced staff locally on the ground. In this way, we can offer our clients the full logistics chain from worldwide to local delivery and customs clearance due to our knowledge in the market. Our local knowledge combined with the support of our more than 70 international offices, means we can create any solution to the market”, says Ehrhorn.

Quality and high-end services are paramount

With the opening of the first office in Iraq, Blue Water closely follows market developments and create solutions in a global market. The office will accommodate the need for reliable and high-quality logistics in a transport market that we see is increasingly developing during coming years.

“We are excited to have opened this market for Blue Water. Our presence in Iraq is well-received by valued clients and key players in the region. We are confident to bring the trusted Blue Water quality and services to the country and expand our market reach”, adds Marwa Saad, General Manager, Blue Water Iraq.
