Iraq - Umm Qasr Logistics Centre

The Umm Qasr Logistics Center (UQLC), an area of 750,000 sqm, has been developed just to the north of Umm Qasr Port and is ideally placed to provide an extension to the terminals at the Port. It is a fully intergrated logistics centre with facilities to enable value adding services like verification, packaging, labelling and other such services.

UQLC  has direct access to the main Basrah - Umm Qasr Road and is placed to take advantage of all the opportunities arising from the impending boom in the Oil and Gas sector. With bonded facilities, in-house Customs, life support systems and professional security, customers will be able to enjoy bespoke services in a professional environment.
