Milaha, Qatar’s maritime & logistics giant, partners with Microsoft to build smart logistics platform
Milaha, Qatar’s leading force in Maritime & Logistics, today partnered with Microsoft to build a smart-logistics platform using artificial intelligence and Internet of Things elements from Microsoft’s Azure cloud ecosystem.
Both companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) during QITCOM, Qatar’s premier technology trade show. The collaboration will enable Milaha to better engage customers, empower employees, optimise operations and reinvent business models through digital transformation.
Milaha had previously adopted Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services to migrate its technology stack to the Microsoft intelligent cloud. With the partnership announced today, Milaha and Microsoft will team up to focus on the design, implementation and deployment of systems that will enable smart logistics and connected operations through Azure AI and IoT services, thereby enabling data driven insights, reducing operating costs and further increasing efficiency.
The company was established in July 1957 as the first public shareholding company registered in Qatar and holds commercial registration no. 1. Milaha’s current activities include marine transportation in gas, petroleum products, containers and bulk; offshore support services; port management and operations; logistics services; shipyard; trading agencies; real estate investments; and asset management.
