(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Etihad Rail - the master developer and operator of the UAE's national railway network - on Monday announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Dubai-based Global Shipping & Logistics, or GSL, a subsidiary of the Al Shirawi Group of companies and a leading third-party logistics provider.

The agreement will see GSL use the Etihad Rail network for a cold chain - a temperature-controlled supply chain - for which rail brings many benefits, according to a Press release by Etihad Rail.

The MoU, which was signed by Etihad Rail CEO Dr Nasser Saif Al Mansouri and GSL CEO Khalid Al Shirawi, is a strategic move for GSL, whose client base includes international and local brands of premium restaurant chains and food items.

"Etihad Rail aims to offer customised solutions to UAE businesses to foster growth within the UAE. We are proud to provide GSL " a leading UAE-based third party logistics provider- reach into the Mena region and Asia with a sustainable transportation solution that will positively impact their customers and the UAE community," Al Mansouri said.

"We anticipate that using rail will create a lower cost and more reliable and effective cold chain for our customers, in particular those who are distributing perishable goods to the GCC market," Al Shirawi said.
