The company succeeded in doubling its sales across Saudi Arabia, and grew 14% in Qatar, maintaining stable sales in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Ethiopia

To kickstart 2021, the brand has launched its 'Better Life' strategy to demonstrate their commitment to improving the lives of its customers and the planet by offering sustainable logistics solutions.
