Imad Al-Othman–Alimad Marine Service Ltd






SAMA AL IMAD INTERNATIONAL FORWARDING WLL is a joint venture between SAIMA AVANDERO SPA and Al-Imad Marine Service LTD, which have worked together ever since the nineteen-seventies. The expertise and specialization of the two Companies in the areas involved enable SAMA AL IMAD INTERNATIONAL FORWARDING WLL, who have teamed up with people experienced in transport, industrial plants, civil works and oil and gas activities, to offer a unique package at the disposal of customers needing to move to and from the Republic of Iraq. The joint venture knows its way around on a difficult market, where the rules and regulations are constantly changing, having focused on providing its expertise in freight-forwarding services to Iraq.

SAIMA AVANDERO SPA SAIMA AVANDERO SPA was established in 1746 and has grown steadily ever since. Its specialized Projects Division operates currently with experienced and dedicated staff specialised in transporting project equipment worldwide with door-to-door services, by sea, air, road and rail. The company started to work on projects in Iraq in the nineteen-seventies, providing logistics and transport services for industrial plants and large infrastructures and construction sites for projects such as dams, roads and bridges, as well as transport services in the field of oil and gas. After the embargo in the nineteen-nineties, we focused on shipment of food, equipment and medicines, in the framework of the FAO “Oil for Food” programme. At the present time, the dedicated Projects Division team at our Milan Headquarters follows the commercial and operational aspects of all transport activities, offering customers assistance from the time their cargo leaves their premises until final delivery on a door-to-door basis. Ever since it developed its initial activities in Iraq, Saima Avandero SPA appointed Al-Othman Group as their sole agent in that country. Since then Saima’s activity has been maintained and developed constantly.
