Group aims to ‘enhance’ its integrated logistics services to the downstream petroleum industry in the GCC
Tristar Group has opened two new facilities in the UAE and Oman as it aims to enhance its integrated logistics services to the downstream petroleum industry in the GCC.
The new truck staging and workshop facility at Industrial City in Abu Dhabi 2 (ICAD 2) has 50,000sqm to create “tailor-made logistics service options” to customers for transport, warehousing, storage and distribution services. It is strategically located near Khalifa Port, and the main highway connecting UAE with Saudi Arabia, it explained in a statement.
“Our new facility in Abu Dhabi reinforces our confidence in investing in the UAE economy which is expected to further strengthen with the UAE government’s recent regulations extending visa tenure, and providing greater support to investors,” said Tristar Group CEO, Eugene Mayne.
The Oman facility meanwhile is located in the Rusayl Industrial Estate which is situated 20km from Muscat International Airport. Tristar’s facility, which is in Phase 2 of Rusayl Industrial Estate, has a total plot of 15, 000sqm with a two-storey office building and a five-day operational workshop, with two inspection pits and a washdown bay. Products can be stored outside or inside the warehouse. Its location gives easier access to transport fuel and supplies to the rest of Oman as it is at the edge of Muscat, with no road restriction, said Tristar Group.
“We have been operating on leased facilities in Abu Dhabi and Oman for several years. We have decided to make further investments to consolidate our capabilities in the GCC region and the locations selected, in Abu Dhabi and Oman, are the result of proper network planning to selecting the best locations to support our customers’ operations and business growth strategy,” added Mayne.
