Update time: 2015-06-01

SHANGHAI (29th May 2015) – Chinese logistics leader Worldwide Logistics Group and NAWAH today announced that the two companies have forged an alliance to better serve the growing logistical demands for Asian companies serving the growing market of Southern Iraq.

Worldwide Logistics (WWL), headquartered in Shanghai, is a leading logistics player in the Chinese market with 30 branch and representative offices throughout China and the greater Far East. NAWAH, also known as North America Western Asia Holdings, is a leading distribution and logistics service provider with headquarters in Dubai.

“Southern Iraq is undergoing unparalleled development today with an expanding middle class of citizens who increasingly demand the continual flow of essential goods from Asian markets. WWL and NAWAH have strategically aligned to offer a unique and reliable end-to-end logistical solution to meet these market dynamics,” said Paul Brinkley, NAWAH’s President and CEO.

One of the most comprehensive and diversified shipping and logistics groups in China, WWL has been recognized as a leading logistics provider and ranked as one of the top freight forwarding companies by China’s International Freight Forwarders Association.

WWL’s warehousing, customs brokerage, terminal handling and freight forwarding capabilities strongly position the company to offer extensive Chinese domestic-logistics services in support of its vast international shipping and logistical offerings.

NAWAH Port Management (NPM), one of NAWAH’s three major business units, operates a modern, fully containerized terminal at the Port of Basra (also known as al Maqal Port) located in downtown Basra, Iraq. Along with sister company NAWAH Supply & Distribution, NPM offers customers a full spectrum of door-to-door, supply-chain capabilities for cargo being transshipped through Jebel Ali Port in the United Arab Emirates and bound for Iraq’s oil and gas fields and commercial markets.

“Our alliance’s extensive capabilities will allow WWL – in partnership with NPM – to further develop a robust and reliable logistics service from locations throughout China to key sites across Iraq,” said Jacky Lim, WWL’s Managing Director. “Together, WWL and NAWAH will redefine the China-Iraq trade lane, bringing vast efficiencies to bear where efficiencies have long been absent.”
