Under the five-year contract, Agility will manage warehousing activities such as materials handling and spare parts, preservation and re-organization for the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) in Kuwait.

KNPC began outsourcing their warehouses to Agility in 2003. As a direct result this has allowed them to concentrate on their core competency, oil refining, without having to invest time or efforts into reliable storage or transportation issues.

Dakheel Al-Dakheel, director of sales for Agility, said: Agility has a long history with KNPC and has managed several contracts for them over the last five years. This new contract demonstrates their confidence in our capabilities and further strengthens our relationship with them.
