SA Talke is one of the most well-known logistics brands in Saudi Arabia, and is globally respected for its highly efficient logistics services for the oil and gas sector. But, the company faces a challenge, while it is famous for oil and gas logistics, it fortunes rest to a large extent on the economic performance of that sector. For this reason, SA Talke wants to diversify, and it plans to do so by leveraging the world-class reputation it has developed in the oil and gas sector.

“We’re looking to diversify our business. Our core business will always be petrochemical, but we also have a strong network that can be adapted for other sectors, the ability to package and transport petrochemicals in an efficient, safe and environmentally friendly way will enable us to be more flexible and bring in additional business in healthcare, food logistics and so on,” says Oliver Klingbeil, managing director of SA Talke. “It’s about combining our core competencies with other market niches.”

SA Talke’s core competence is in on-site logistics operations. It was recently awarded an on-site logistics contract for National Petrochemical Industrial Company (NATPET) in Yanbu, province of Medina, Saudi Arabia. SA Talke will operate on-site logistics for NATPET in Medina´s Yanbu industrial city for an initial period of three years. The contract encompasses product handling and warehouse management.

“We are very pleased we could secure SA Talke´s support to this production entity," says Jamal Malaikah, president and COO of NATPET. “By this move we will further enhance our supply chain efficiency and thus our customers´ experience of our product and service quality,” he added.
