Coalition Support

Kuwait and the United States have enjoyed excellent Trade relations for the last two decades. This relationship has been tested over the years, and recent, regional developments have only strengthened that relationship. KGL has been proud to support the US and Coalition Forces, a partnership that dates back to 1994.

The liberation of Kuwait from the Iraqi Forces in 1991 opened a new door for opportunities to Kuwaiti companies wanting to venture into contracts with the Coalition Forces. One of the first companies to provide transportation, logistics support and other services to the Coalition Forces, was the Kuwait & Gulf Link Transport Company (KGL). KGL supplied heavy equipment, transportation and other support services to the US Army, stationed at what was Camp Doha at the time. KGL was the first commercial entity to enter Iraq to supply equipment and haulage to the US/Coalition Forces and to distribute food under the UN World Food Program and other UN aid to Iraq.

Over the years, KGL has expanded its services by supplying large numbers of vehicles, heavy equipment and transportation of troops, personnel and material to the US/Coalition Forces throughout the Middle East Theater, thereby solidifying its partnership while fulfilling critical mission requirements.

In 2003, Kuwait provided the primary logistics platform for Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) led by the US Armed Forces into Iraq. KGL was the first company to provide transportation and logistics services to the US Armed Forces during the US push into Iraq. Vehicles and heavy equipment provided throughout 2003 exceeded 30,000 units, which included the use of over 15,000 flatbed truck mission days, over 5,500 low bed truck mission days and over 10,000 passenger bus mission days. KGL continues to provide these services and more, and will continue to support this effort while support requirements exist.

Throughout the years, KGL has been awarded various citations and commendations by the US and Coalition Forces for its role in providing logistics support in the line of fire. KGL continues to fulfill US Government requirements and is proud to support its missions as a strategic partner on the battlefield.
