Power 40 2023: Gordon Wyatt, Executive Vice President, Middle East and Africa, DSV Air & Sea


DSV MENA, a logistics and transport company, is expanding along with the Middle East’s economy. This region links Europe, Asia, and Africa. Approximately 16% of global air cargo flies via Gulf airports, and 30% of the world’s shipping containers pass through Egypt’s Suez Canal. DSV’s air freight, ocean freight, road transport, warehousing, special projects and customs clearance services are well-suited for this kind of setting, thanks to the expertise of their team.

DSV is experiencing rapid expansion throughout the region, especially in the KSA, the UAE, and Iraq, as the region’s economy continues to diversify and expand. Under the leadership of Gordon Wyatt, DSV’s Executive Vice President of Air & Sea, Middle East & Africa, and his team, these markets have grown significantly, bolstering DSV’s global presence while contributing to local economies.

With 6,500 employees operating out of nine strategically placed offices across the region, DSV MENA offers local knowledge and global reach, collaborating with the public and private sectors to deliver effective and seamless logistics solutions. DSV has also played a significant role in the expansion of the oil and gas industry in the area. Additionally, DSV strongly emphasises sustainability, and its local Green Logistics programmes closely match its global goals. Gordon Wyatt and his team’s shared vision drives the adoption of energy-efficient procedures and the reduction of emissions, among other environmentally beneficial practices.
