SPECTA stand was honoured by visit of H.E. Eng. Hazloul Bin Husein AlHazloul, Deputy Minister of transport of Saudi Arabia who opened Saudi Transtec on 8th December.
Saudi Transtec exhibition and conference, held in Dammam, KSA from 8 to 10 December 2015, has developed over 6 years and each edition provides a stronger foundation for business development in Saudi Arabia’s Transport and Logistics sector. Saudi Arabia is targeting US$100 billion in port, airport, rail, road and logistics centre projects over the next decade. Positioned between Europe, Africa and Asia-Pacific, Saudi Arabia provides the ideal hub for global transportation.
Specta has presented strapping and marking solutions for transportation of heavy and bulky goods during the exhibition. Saudi market is importing 80% of strapping products, so Specta steel and PET straps had a great deal of attention from visitors. 85 consultations were given by Specta team, and visitors had chance to test Specta Kronos, Specta Sumo, Specta Asahi, Specta Mikado and other strapping tools. Marking labels, presented by Specta, was another point of interest for guests of our stand.
Mr. Erik Helin, CEO of Specta Group, highlighted during the conference: “The right choice of packaging materials ensures transportation safety and cost efficiency. Statistics from insurance companies shows that 1 out of 10 packages arrives somehow damaged, which results in replacement or rejection of materials. In case of a claim, the whole profit is often lost, or even more. Such issues can be prevented, if you work with reliable packaging materials supplier.”
Specta already supplies on regular basis to a range of steel and metallurgical companies in Saudi Arabia, and Saudi Transtec was a good opportunity to receive new contacts and meet once again our existing clients.
