Rupesh provides us with an insight into the firm’s service offering and how it utilises its vast experience in the industry to ensure success for every client it works with. “Here at Carson Logistics, we have inherited years of local and international expertise which gives us the confidence to handle these operations along with our overseas partners who share the same enthusiasm. We understand that there are ‘no second chances’ when it comes to live events/sports, which is why we bring in a reputation of being proactive and effective to get things delivered on time no matter what. We also provide 3PL like warehousing, local pick up and delivery, container transport, car carrier transport, car stuffing, air charters, customs clearance, personal effects, relocation and other related services. As such, our clients need look no further when seeking a partner for their event.” Being based in Qatar offers Carson Logistics a range of opportunities, and Rupesh has QA1800010 recently noticed that many of the region’s developments will provide his firm with even greater chances for success, as he highlights. “One key factor we noticed in the last year is that Qatar has become more independent and open to local manufactures and products, as they have been encouraging more local companies to expand business which is a key factor to any country when you can be self- sufficient rather than depend too much on imports from other countries. This will help improve the export market as well which has been over the years predominantly focused on Oil and Gas related products and will also give brand recognition to local companies which otherwise were over shadowed by International brands earlier. As we focus closely on Sports logistics and Qatar being the prominent sporting destination within the region, it benefits us to offer our services to various types of clients that participate in these events and Logistics is one of the key factors to make any event successful. Also, the infrastructure has tremendously improved over the past years be it New Airport / Sea Port, upcoming Rail, flyovers, etc which will only lead to better connectivity in the future.” As he looks to the future Rupesh is optimistic that Carson Logistics will continue to grow and flourish as it seeks to build upon its current service offering and support even more clients. “With regards to the future, at Carson Logistics we are hoping to increase our transport fleet and warehouse space, as we try to develop a larger customer base and also focus on e-commerce logistics. These developments offer us many exciting opportunities which we look forward to taking advantage of over the years to come.” Company: Carson Logistics W.L.L Contact: Rupesh Dsouza Address: PO Box 30706, Doha-Qatar Phone: 00974 4423 1115 # Website: Best Sports Logistics Company 2018
