11. Richard Bell
Managing Director
RHS Logistics

2014 position: 15
2013 position: 15

Richard Bell, managing director of RHS Logistics, joined 100-year-old shipping services company Rais Hassan Saadi Group in 1998 with the remit to create and develop a new business division that would provide 3PL services to manufacturers of consumer products. RHS Logistics was born and Bell, who possesses extensive experience in third party logistics, has been at the helm since its inception.

Bell steered RHS Logistics from zero to AED 400 million worth of investments with a sustainable vision of a logistics park with world class facilities and infrastructure, headquartered in Dubai World Central (DWC). The DWC RHS Logistics Park is complimented by facilities in JAFZA and DAFZA, together spanning 200,000 sq m. In 2014 the company opened phase two of its DWC facility, which Bell says is “a dedicated highly secured and engineered operation for the world’s foremost tablet and smartphone manufacturer”.

Following a string of high profile contract wins, RHS Logistics invested in developing technology systems and support personnel. “As part of our agreement with clients, we provide 24/7 inventory access and EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) for fast, accurate data transfers. IT is a continuous development process and we have implemented a lot of software outside our main WMS, which is individually tailored to our client requirements,” he says.

RHS is tendering phase three and four of its DWC facilities to create a logistics park with 150,000 pallet capability, which together with the Jebel Ali and DAFZA facilities, raises total pallet capacity to 200,000. It moves in excess of 400,000 individual products through its warehouse from various industry segments.
