Agility Supports K2O Expedition to Raise Environmental Awareness
 

Agility to provide logistics support to the 2,200 kilometer journey from Kuwait to Oman

Kuwait, November 14, 2016:  Agility, a leading global logistics provider, is supporting a 2,200 kilometer kayak journey from Kuwait to Oman (K2O), to raise awareness for environmental protection in the Gulf.

Avid kayakers Bashar Al-Huneidi, and Mansoor Al-Safran, who represent Kayak4Kuwait, are leading the journey from Kuwait to Oman to raise environmental awareness around marine conservation and protection in the region. Kayak4Kuwait is a local four man team with an aim of creating awareness on the importance of preserving the Arabian Gulf, and triggering action to that effect.

Also supported by the Kuwait Environment Public Authority and other local organizations, the duo kicked off their journey in Kuwait on November 10 and will kayak down the coasts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates before arriving in Oman. The trip will also include stops at a number of Arabian Gulf islands, coral reefs, and other marine environments. 

Agility is supporting the expedition with logistics consultancy and support, transporting the kayaks from the United Kingdom to Kuwait, organizing drivers to pilot the land support team as well as offering logistics expertise in general. 

Henadi Al-Saleh, Chair of the Board in Agility, said “At Agility, we work with customers, employees, industry partners and non-governmental organizations to do our part in ensuring a more sustainable future. Raising awareness about the environment is important for our company. By supporting the K2O Expedition, we are doing our part in the protection and conservation of the marine environment in our region.” 

Bashar Al-Huneidi, Founder of Kayak4Kuwait, said “Our seas need us now more than ever. We have a responsibility to help our governments to protect and manage our natural world and resources.” 

The expedition aims to raise awareness on the environmental threats to the Arabian Gulf, by speaking to government officials and community members in each country on enforcing existing environmental legislations, incorporating sustainable practices and measures, and providing environmental education in schools.  
Agility works closely with its customers to measure and improve the environmental performance of their supply chain activities. It also is committed to reducing its own environmental impact. Details of those efforts are available in Agility’s 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Report, “Deepening Impact.”
