Markets & Customers


The company’s customers are largely professional car traders and shippers located in Europe. They serve individual and professional buyers in the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and West Africa who are looking to import second hand cars from Europe.







Automotive Industry’s Potential


According to Technavio, a global tech research and advisory firm, over 128 million used cars will be sold annually by 2021, which would represent a compound annual growth rate of more than 7%.

In 2016, the global market share of the European and EMEA (Middle East and Africa) regions stood at just under 34%. Technavio predicts that there will be over 36 million used car units sold in those two regions by 2021.

36 million cars sold annually is a huge market in which Sallaum Logistic Center has been present since 1996. Because SAFICO’s subsidiaries focus on vehicle shipping, there was a need to invest in vehicle trading hubs and free zones in Europe. These marketplaces extend the reach of SAFICO’s companies and help them compete on price and the quality of customer service.

Management

Company managers each have 20+ years of in-depth experience in running a large marketplace for used vehicles.
