Milaha, a Qatar-based
shipping and logistics conglomerate, participated in the 2nd Business
Continuity and Resilience Conference, which was held in Doha on November 20th under the patronage of Minister of Commerce and Industry Ali
bin Ahmed al Kuwariand attended by business continuity, risk management and
organizational resilience professionals from all sectors.
Milaha’s PCEO Mr.
Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai headed the company’s delegation to the conference
where he delivered a presentation, showcasing the latest upgrades in Milaha’s
operations and services, and the company’s contribution to the overall
resilience of the Qatari economy.In his presentation, Mr. Al-Mannai highlighted
some of Milaha’s success stories since the beginning of the blockade, notably,
connecting Qatari cargo to international liner networks and supporting Qatar’s
food supply chain connectivity.
Mr. Al-Mannai said:
“From the first day of the blockade, Milaha has proven itself to be a reliable
and trustworthy partner by ensuring business continuity to all its clients,
starting with the relocation of our transhipment hub and the quick rollout and
expansion of fast, direct shipping services between Qatar and key regional and
international ports in the Sultanate of Oman, Kuwait, Pakistan, India, and Turkey.
As a result of
those decisive and prompt measures, a lot of the blockade’s repercussions have
been mitigated and even reversed to Qatar’s benefit; and the shortage of vital
goods and supplies was averted.”
Mr. Al-Mannai also
received the Business Continuity Institute’s“Award for the Continuity and
Resilience Provider” category, which was judged by a UK-based panel of
independent international experts in further recognition of Milaha’s role in
ensuring continuity of business in Qatar.
