KGL History
Our Journey to Success

Today, KGL is the premier provider of integrated Supply Chain Management services in the Middle East, fulfilling the Transportation, Logistics, Port Management, Shipping and Freight Forwarding needs of countless regional and international clients. However, our journey began in 1956 when Dashti Construction Co. (W.L.L) was established by Mr. Esmail Dashti, excelling in Construction and Stevedoring operations within Kuwait. 

In the 1970’s, the Company began its successful expansion into Transportation and Stevedoring operations when it became the sole Stevedoring contractor in Shuwaikh Port in Kuwait. In 1982, the Stevedoring and Transportation operations were spun-off as Kuwait & Gulf Link Transport Company (K.S.C) Closed. Through hard work KGL continued its expansion regionally into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (K.S.A) in 1985, where it started its Stevedoring operations in Jubail, Yanbuh and Jeddah Ports. At the same time, the company continued to gain a reputation for excellence in transporting cargo, including that of mega EPS projects.
In the 1980’s, the Company steadily expanded its business services and began providing waste collection operations for the Kuwaiti Municipality, enabling KGL to become one of the largest and most efficient service providers within this sector. Despite the fast-paced expansion within these years, when Kuwait was invaded by Iraq in the early 1990’s, KGL's business -- like many others -- suffered in the midst of the regional turmoil.

Following the Liberation of Kuwait, the company rebuilt its Stevedoring, Transportation, Waste Management, and Waste Collection operations.

In 1996, KGL became the main operator of Shuaiba Container Terminal Port in Kuwait. KGL expanded further by diversifying its line of services by launching the Car Rental division in 1997, targeting its services to the Governmental sector. In 2000, KGL participated in the first privatization project in Saudi Arabia, where it won a 25 year concession to operate the Jeddah Islamic North Container Terminal as part of a Consortium. That same year, KGL shares were listed on the Kuwait Stock Exchange.

In 2004, regional and global demands increased substantially for fully integrated Transportation, Logistics and Supply Chain Management services.  This provided an opportunity for KGL to achieve sustainable growth and greater profitability by leveraging its core competencies in Transportation, Logistics, and Supply Chain services. The Kuwait & Gulf Link Holding Company (KGL) was established. By 2007, the lines of business were spun-off into separate business units in order to enhance the services and efficiency of each sector, as well as to create economies of scale for the group of companies.
