In 2003 SKA established an office in Kuwait to support operations in Iraq during the post-conflict period. This remains an important and significant base for our Head Office operations in Dubai. The Kuwait office currently supports the Safwan Logistics Base and Fuel Storage Terminal at the Port of Khor Al Zubair in the South of Iraq. SKA Kuwait also provides aircraft handling services at Kuwait International Airport.
The Safwan Logistics Base is a 70,000 sqm logistics facility located five km north of the Kuwaiti/Iraqi border. The fully secure modern facility is equipped for loading and unloading cargo and has internet connectivity, life support units and customs officers on site.
SKA is able to cross-load cargo from Kuwait to Iraqi trucks and provide customs clearance at this one location, resulting in significant time and cost savings for clients.
