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 all types of services related to the port. It is a fully integrated logistics centre with facilities offering value added services like shifting cargo from the port, handling at the facility, storing, consolidation, de-consolidation, sorting, stripping and stuffing of cargo in/ out of containers, verification, packaging, labelling and other logistic 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 and IPA (Iraqi Port Authorities), life support systems and professional security, customers will be able to enjoy bespoke services in a professional environment, offered through a one-stop-shop location.
