Globe Group – well diversified marine portfolio

Since its establishment in 1976, the Dammam-based Globe has  grown  into one of Saudi Arabia’s  leading marine services groups, with a diversified portfolio that includes shipping, logistics, transportation, port operations, logistics, operations and maintenance, container terminals, petrol and chemical plants, restaurants, real estate and retail fashion brands.

The company’s business activities are looked after by six divisions – shipping, logistics, projects, retail, trading and motors.

Globe Shipping has an impressive track record of successfully identifying, introducing and representing as an agent, some of the world's most reputed container carriers in the market. In addition to its major shipping activities, Group is diversifying into other areas like freight forwarding, ISO tank business, flexi tanks, project cargo, heavy lift, etc.

A few years after its inception, Globe created Globe Logistics, which provides domestic and international land transportation services. The company offers safe, modern and efficient land transportation and container terminal services to local customers, importers and exporters, relying on its own 2,000 trucks for its operations, and trusting 1,500 sub-contracted units for more flexibility.


The group operated the general cargo and container terminal at the East Port of Dammam on a 10-year lease, and was also the operator of the General & Grain Cargo Terminal at Jubail Commercial Port for a 10-year lease period.

“For the past 42 years, we have offered our clients exemplary service in a number of logistical areas,” says Globe’s Managing Director, Maad Ehsan Abdul Jawad. “Whether it is a one-off requirement, or a comprehensive turnkey operation, or a multi-faceted collaboration, we have the local knowledge, combined with the best professional and technical expertise to deliver beyond your expectations.

“‘Creating Peace of Mind’ is not just a fancy tag-line. Every member of our team believes in our core purpose, and understands what it means to our clients and our own success.”
