RSA Logistics and TALKE Group sign joint venture in Dubai
Hürth/Dubai 14 May 2013. RSA Logistics, a provider of transport and logistics services headquartered in Dubai, and TALKE, a German chemical logistician based in Hürth near Cologne, today announced the creation of a joint venture in the United Arab Emirates.
RSA-TALKE, an upcoming state-of-the-art chemicals storage facility in Dubai Logistics City, in which each of the partners hold a 50-percent share, will offer logistics services for the Gulf region at the highest standards for safety and quality.
For the TALKE Group, the logistics complex under construction on the grounds of Dubai World Central is the latest expansion of its presence in the Middle East, joining locations already operational in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain. ‘The production as well as the import and export of specialty chemicals is gaining in importance here in the Gulf region', remarked Richard Heath, Director Middle East & Asia at TALKE and Director at RSA-TALKE. ‘As part of this trend, we support our customers by providing added capacity for high-quality and safe logistics services’, added Abhishek Ajay Shah, Director of Operations & Business Development at RSA and Director at RSA-TALKE.
The hazardous-materials storage facility planned by the partners will be built to international safety and quality standards and offers more than 19,000 pallet spaces. It is expected to be operational by the first quarter of 2014. RSA-TALKE customers will benefit from a broad spectrum of logistics services for non-hazardous and hazardous materials, as well as a location with good traffic and transport links on the grounds of Dubai World Central, with direct connections not only to regional and international road and sea routes but also to Al Maktoum International Airport, which is slated to be the world´s largest airport.
