The Middle East is a region on the move, literally.
The local economy relies heavily on imports, exports, and mobility of commercial and private goods to keep consumers satisfied. These pillars of day-to-day life also keep the GCC vibrant and growing.
ATLAS was founded more than 50 years ago with these considerations in mind.
Originally known as “Alghanim Freight,” the company was established with a singular goal in mind: ensuring safe and secure freight shipments for customers, by land, sea and air. As the world changed, causing shifts in the associated needs of our customers in the Gulf region, so did ATLAS. The result, today, is a comprehensive transport company that offers a robust and diverse suite of services. As for our signature service — basic transport — we still offer that, too.
Our name change pretty much says it all: ATLAS. In Greek mythology, Atlas was a titan of the universe who literally held the celestial sphere on his back; he was also a master of navigation.
We’ll leave the celestial-heaving to mythology…for now. But make no mistake: We are unmatched when it comes to getting your goods from one location to another, whether it’s to a new apartment, or a sky-high office tower; across town or across the globe. And we have a 50-year legacy of satisfied customers to back us up on that.
No job is too big – or too small – for mighty ATLAS.
For residential customers, we offer a range of door-to-door international moving options. ATLAS can also handle the relocation of household and personal items. If your new residence isn’t quite ready for you, no problem. ATLAS offers short and long-term storage solutions, priced to meet every budget. Business customers, likewise, can select from an equally robust portfolio of solutions, including but not limited to: warehousing, customs clearance & brokerage, supply chain consultancy, project management, relocation services and insurance.
ATLAS is part of Alghanim Industries, one of the oldest and largest employers in the Middle East. Founded by the Alghanim family of Kuwait, Alghanim Industries today has more than 30 businesses in 40 countries.
