Trading and Logistics are one important function in business nowadays. No marketing, manufacturing or project execution can succeed without trading and logistics support. Logistics is comparatively a new term, but not the operation. Logistics has existed since the beginning of civilization. Raw material and finished products had always to be moved, though on a small scale. Things began changing with the advance in transportation. Population began moving from rural to urban areas and to business centers. No longer did people live near production centers, nor did production take place near residence centers. The geographical distance between the production point and consumption point increased. And logistics gained importance in Saudi Arabia especially in the production of oil, gas, and petrochemicals
Another factor has come into play recently. Since the early 1990's, the business scene has changed. Since competition has required that the customer gets the right material, Alzahid Group has its own established Trading and Logistics offices located all over the world so they can deliver its finished goods to their consumers, at the right time, at the right point and in the right condition… and finally at the lowest cost.
