Ethihad Rail and Globe Express Services cooperate
Etihad Rail, the developer and operator of the UAE’s national railway network, and Globe Express Services (GES), a prominent logistics company in the UAE, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU). Under the terms of the pact GES will utilise Etihad Rail’s 1,200 km network to further develop its market leading position.
Once completed, Etihad Rail network will extend across the UAE, connecting the Emirates to Saudi Arabia and Oman. The railway will run from Ghweifat to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and the northern Emirates, with major connecting points including Al Ain and Madinat Zayed.
To date, Etihad Rail has signed more than 20 MoUs with a number of customers throughout the Emirates – in industries ranging from petrochemicals and agriculture to aggregates and waste – all of whom recognise rail as the preferred mode of transport for their goods. (ben)
