Kuwait logistics sector developed as a result of the large logistic contracts associated with the presence of the US in Iraq. The 2 major players are KGL and Agility followed by Kuwait Dynamics and Mubarrad Transport. The western defense contractors have decreased. But on the other hand, there has been a substantial increase in international construction companies. The sector is still booming due due to the fact that the construction sector is booming with the government projects and international contractors are actually requiring that service more. The end of war in Iraq can serve as a major opportunity for the Kuwaiti logistics companies.
