Sol international is meant for high regard to employees’ self-respect and personality. For this reason, we have created an environment where every employee lives up to his/her highest moral authority.
Sol international, from the very first time of its inception, has been determined to create a work environment that can become enjoyable and profitable for all - customers, employees and stakeholders.
In the past years, we have invested heavily on dedicated ICT infrastructure to cater to the demand of 21st century business environment. Accordingly, we have successfully managed to set up fully networked (LAN) office setup. And that has made file transfer, document storage & retrieval and resource optimization (scanners, printers …etc) much easier.
Moreover, we have, in collaboration with Customs authority, established Direct Trader Input (DTI) system. This has enabled us to clear consignments via electronic data transfer of declarations. It became possible through wide area connectivity (WAN) of ASYCUDA++ client with ASYCUDA++ server.
Needless to say, paper based communication will still play vital role in intra and inter office communications. But, our company is strongly committed to the ‘green’ initiative, and has strived a lot in making more of paperless environment for its in-house work and its correspondence with external stakeholders like Customs authority.
It takes a substantial amount of cash flow to maintain a robust transiting business. Container deposits and transport fees sometimes require millions. We have recently invested on a car carrier whose sole task is to bring SOL international vehicles from Djibouti.
Sol international has strong working relationship with Tofik Dahdar and Nile Transit, our Dubai and Djibouti partners respectively. Our overseas partners have been hand selected over many years to provide the same high standard of service and competitiveness. You can be confident that, whatever the task, it will be handled reliably both at home and abroad.
