The CEO of WorldBridge Group of Companies, one of the fastest growing logistics solutions providers in Cambodia visited the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) on 3 April 2015 to discuss future collaboration in the field of affordable housing and structural engineering. The meeting between WorldBridge and AIT started with an overview of AIT’s broad expertise in technology, engineering, environment, development, and management. Mr. Rami Sharaf, CEO, WorldBridge Group of Companies, gave an overview of the range of services offered by WorldBridge and then the possible avenues for future collaborations were discussed. AIT expressed interest to provide support to Worldbridge’s projects, particularly in the area of Affordable Housing and Structural Engineering. AIT Consulting could act as a third party to review the projects or provide technical support to Worldbridge when required, to which Mr. Rami Sharaf listened quite keenly with a positive intention to move forward. It was also mutually decided to hold future meetings with AIT for possible collaboration.
The WorldBrige was established in 1992 as Circle Freight International (Cambodia) Co., Ltd. after the signing of the Paris Peace Agreement. Later in 1994, it was then registered as WorldBridge International (Cambodia) Ltd., and were known as the first-ever local logistic company in Cambodia that served the United Nations, and related bodies. Since then, the company developed a reputable partnership with other logistics companies across Asia and throughout the globe. As Cambodia’s economy starts to recover and grow, the Chairman & CEO expanded the business to other sectors such as construction, real estate, entertainment, franchising, finance and also acquiring property and some businesses. WorldBridge was the first local logistic company in Cambodia that served the United Nations, United States Embassy and international organizations such as UNDP, WFP and WHO from the beginning of their operation until today.
