Bangkok: Patrick Dick, founder of Thai-based project specialist, The Freight Co, is the focus on our sister site Maritime CEO today. As well as his own company he founded the Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN) in 2004 as a platform for SMEs to compete against multinationals. Since then GPLN has grown and now boasts around 250 member offices around the world.
When asked about particular hotspots for work Dick was quick to talk up the Middle East, fresh from GPLN’s recent AGM in Abu Dhabi.
GLPN’s Middle East-based members are upbeat about the project sector there, Dick said. “Areas where they see tremendous growth are obviously in the oil and gas sector but they also see huge potential in the continued build-up of the infrastructure,” the project specialist said. [10/07/13]
