Logistics ME Power List: No 16 Jeff Khoury
Managing director of Toll Global Forwarding in the Middle East
The growth of Toll Global Forwarding (TGF) in the Middle East has increased the influence of regional director Jeff Khoury, who is ranked a little outside of this year’s top 15. Most recently, TGF has benefited from its acquisition of Logistics Distribution Systems (LDS), a Dubai-based 3PL company with a central warehouse facility in Jebel Ali Free Zone. The move has provided an instant boost to TGF’s Middle East operations and follows a similar acquisition of BALtrans, which was re-branded as Toll Global Forwarding across the region last year. Rumours suggest that further acquisitions in the Middle East are a certain possibility in 2010. With such health levels of growth, Khoury has expanded his team over the past year, making particular use of individuals that were made redundant from other logistics companies due to the global recession.
