MEED Awards Win for Pentagon Freight Services LLC


We are delighted to announce that Pentagon Freight Services LLC has been named the winner of the Logistics/Transport Company of the Year category in the MEED Awards 2018.

The MEED Awards recognise the best companies in the GCC across all sectors, aiming to promote best practice in business and showcase outstanding performance in key areas of operation such as innovation, worker welfare and sustainability.

The judges were impressed by the well-thought-out and comprehensive training plan that was implemented with the launch of the new order management software. They also appreciated the transparency of the client portals, which are individually set up for each project cargo movement. Judges also noted praise for their focus on company-wide CSR initiatives and their further objectives, and wanted to celebrate their commitment to allowing every member of staff two paid days off work annually to volunteer.

It is a significant achievement to have been given this recognition by MEED – the region’s most trusted business intelligence provider – and we are so proud to stand alongside the winners of the other 17 categories, who represent some of the best businesses in the GCC. We feel closer than ever to achieving our aim of being recognised by our clients, colleagues, competitors and supply chain as the best-in-class freight forwarding and logistics service provider to the energy and resource industries!

The winners of the 18 categories were presented with their awards at a gala dinner at the Ritz Carlton, DIFC, Dubai, on Wednesday. Pictured is Gordon Shand, Regional Director – Middle East, receiving the award, and with other members of the team. The complete list of winners can be viewed here.
