CARGOSTORE formalises expansion into the Middle East by opening Cargostore Containers LLC based in Abu Dhabi.
As a leader in the supply of DNV 2.7-1 certified offshore cargo carrying units throughout the Middle East and to meet the growing demand of the standard throughout the region, Cargostore Worldwide Trading formalised its foothold in the market by establishing Cargostore Containers LLC based in Abu Dhabi.
As movement in the Middle Eastern oil and gas industry looks again to increase, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Corporation (ADNOC) has made known its intention to enforce the DNV 2.7-1 standard for offshore cargo carrying units and Cargostore has risen to meet that growth in demand.
Cargostore has hired Abu Dhabi national Sohail Ashraf as General Manager of Cargostore Container LLC’s transactions and is currently operating from its office within the Al Fahim Building, Mussafah, Abu Dhabi.
Says Cargostore Containers LLC General Manager Sohail Ashraf:
“I’m thrilled to join as General Manager for Cargostore’s newly structured LLC offices in Abu Dhabi. It’s an honour and a privilege to be part of such a reliable and innovative organization. I have been working in oil and gas serving industry for nearly 10 years and look forward to working with the team to further develop Cargostore’s already extensive product and service suite. Cargostore’s decision to setup a new office in Abu Dhabi will have a positive impact on the Abu Dhabi oil and gas industry which is looking to replace old and unreliable equipment with the global DNV 2.7-1 certified standard for CCU equipment.”
Cargostore has recently secured 50 new 20ft refrigerated shipping containers to expand their ever-growing stocklist and has deployed further stock including 4, 14, and 34 ft baskets, waste skips and other specialised equipment to be immediately available throughout the Middle East.
