  • 1 year ago

The world’s finest riders and horses came together to put on an impressive display of grace, skill and endurance for the Longines Global Champions Tour which took place between the 5th and 7th of March 2020 at Al Shaqab. Al Shaqab had recently held CHI Al Shaqab at the same venue. CHI - Concours Hippique International is the official title granted by FEI, the highest governing body of equestrian sports in the world. Only five events worldwide showcase this accolade, and Chi Al Shaqab is its only bearer in the Middle East and Asia; thus placing Qatar on the world’s equestrian map.

Bin Yousef Cargo, with its dedicated equine department, had been awarded the contract for handling equine logistics for both Chi Al Shaqab and the Longines Global Champions Tour, managing the import and re-export of over 150 horses for these events.

Director of Cargo Operations at Bin Yousef Cargo, Jiju Haneef said, “Modern fleets of freighters with controlled temperature zones, comfortable and spacious horse stalls and experienced groomers accompanying these horses motivate horse owners around the world, to send their champions to Qatar. 

The state-of-the-art, on-ground live animal facilities such as air-conditioned holding stalls, a paddock as well as on-site veterinary personnel in Qatar, assures the care, comfort, safety and reliability required for the smooth and stress-free transportation of each equine guest we handle”. 

Celebrating its 35th year of operation, Bin Yousef Cargo is one of the leading logistics providers in the region, offering air and sea freight forwarding, along with customs clearance, as well as warehousing and distribution services, while delivering timely operational support. Besides these events, Bin Yousef Cargo has also provided logistics services for sporting events such as the World Cycling Championships and ATP Qatar ExxonMobil Open.
