Founded in Dubai, UAE, in 1989 by logistics veteran Issa Baluch
is an international freight forwarder and logistics provider offering competitive options for sea freight, air freight, sea-air combined transport, overland transport, perishable transport, consolidation and multimodal transport solutions.
From 12 employees in its inception, Swift
now has over 500 employees, with 40 offices in 18 countries.
The group turnover in 2006 crossed over the US$200 million mark.
â€œWhile the achievements in these 18 years have been tremendous in terms of growth, what has been most remarkable about our organization is the local dominance we developed on inception with just 12 people, which was then followed by regional influence, and now a complete global impact.
What a story!â€� said Issa Baluch, Chairman & CEO of the Swift Group.
Contemplating on Swiftâ€™s success over the past 18 years, Baluch
said: â€œI always say that this is not a job of just one person, but a dedicated army of colleagues who are determined to succeed in whatever they put their hands on... and this is joy in its best setting to me personally.â€�
