Flow launches new center in King Abdullah Economic City

Flow, a progressive logistics company, and part of Ghassan Ahmed Al-Sulaiman Group, has announced the official launch of its new omni-channel and e-commerce fulfilment center at King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC).
The development of the logistics services sector is one of the key highlights of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, which aims to put Saudi Arabia on the world map when it comes to logistics management. The new distribution center is designed specifically to support and enhance the e-commerce requirements in line with the objectives of Vision 2030. The company aims to meet the growing needs of local customers through the establishment of a unique logistics platform that links existing commercial centers, paving the way for new trade routes.
Speaking at the launch event in KAEC, Saud Al-Sulaiman, Flow CEO, said: “We have noticed a significant gap when it comes to professional logistics facilities and infrastructure in the Kingdom. Nevertheless, the e-commerce industry continues to grow exponentially year on year, creating a need for logistics to support this increase in demand within the market. And this is why Flow is launching this center here today — incorporating advanced services with superior technology to meet the growing needs and requirements of the e-commerce and logistics industry and we are ready to fill the gap in the market.”
“We’ll continue to grow and expand our footprint in the Kingdom, striving to meet our customers’ needs by creating and reaching them through new channels. The launch of this landmark facility highlights our commitment to providing superior services to improve customer service and move closer to our vision of creating a better everyday life for people. We believe that Flow is capable of offering distinctive solutions to meet the market’s growing needs” added Al-Sulaiman.
The new center is spread across 75,000 square meters, scaling 37.5 meters high. It features multiple floors, with a total area of more than 200,000 square meters, making it the largest center of its kind in Saudi Arabia. The center is capable of accommodating 180,000 industrial pallets equivalent storage positions.
The center is designed in a way to cater to both full storage pallets and e-commerce parcel solutions, with a current operational capacity of 190 per shift in phase 1.

Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis has officially launched its compact G70 luxury sedan in Middle East markets, completing the brand’s core sedan lineup. Engineered as a dynamic car with strong appeal to younger customers and more enthusiastic drivers, the G70 joins the flagship G90 large sedan and mid-sized G80 and G80 Sport.

“Genesis has been very well received in the Middle East, and the Genesis G70 will be an exciting new chapter in our story,” said Altar Yilmaz, Genesis general manager for the Africa and Middle East region. “For many of our potential customers, this is the Genesis they have been waiting for.”

The arrival of the Genesis G70 in showrooms follows a previous display presentation at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, where Genesis fielded a large number of inquiries about the car. With larger G80 and G90 models already growing a strong base of loyal customers, it is expected the compact model will add significantly to the brand’s appeal in the competitive Middle East luxury car market.

The G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s “Athletic Elegance” design identity. 

“The G70’s interior is configured to prioritize an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with an intuitively laid-out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel,” the carmaker said.

The G70 offers two powertrains in the Middle East region — a 3.3-liter V6 petrol turbo and 2.0-liter I4 petrol turbo.  The Lambda II 3.3-liter V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370 ps and maximum torque of 52.0 kg.m (510 N.m) 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 270 km/h.
