About Transportation division

We have been in the transportation sector since the 1970s. Our much-loved mobility solutions include Avis and our latest electric vehicle leasing platform E-Lemo.

Transportation is an important economic sector in the UAE, and our transportation division has been operating in this sector for the past 50 years. In this period, we have seen the country adopt mobility trends such as disruptive technology, autonomous vehicles, and electric transport.

On our part, the Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba Group has adapted and delivered mobility as well as infrastructure solutions with our transportation division.

We have expanded from car rental to chauffeur-driven services, bus and fleet leasing, auto repair, and as of 2021, electric vehicles.

With our extensive range of fleet, we continue to support the UAE’s travel and tourism industry as well its commercial businesses. As we move towards the future, we are looking forward to enabling greater access to sustainable modes of transport.

About Technology division

We started out in the technology space in the 1980s. At the time, the UAE achieved some of the most acclaimed milestones – setting up of Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai Drydocks, and Emirates Airlines.

Against this ambitious backdrop, we brought global brand Xerox to the UAE.

The country was opening its doors to business. The Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba Group recognized the importance of providing technology and digital solutions to government entities and private companies so they could become more efficient.

We formalized our partnership with Xerox as Xerox Emirates, a joint venture. We brought Japanese multinational Ricoh. In the years that followed, we built inhouse capability through Corporate Connection for digital transformation and Pictruc for end-to-end logistics technology.

Over four decades, we have helped multiple clients embrace digital transformation through technology for communication and collaboration, and technology solutions based on RPA (Robotic Process Automation), artificial intelligence, ICT (Information and Communications Technology), cyber security, and cloud computing.

We have been a part of some of the largest technology driven projects in the UAE including the National Archives.

At our technology division we are committed to bringing everyday innovation to your workplaces and home offices.

In the UAE, we have seen the retail economy grow from strength to strength. We have seen an increase in expatriates, high retail spends with rising per capita income, and eCommerce on the rise, but our discerning customers still look for quality.

The UAE and its people have enjoyed a vibrant F&B culture for decades. In context of tourism, global F&B chains are now a part of a visitor’s experience, adding to the country’s gastronomic reputation.

We are referring to coffee culture, trends in healthy eating, celebrity chefs, food trucks, unique dining experiences, food festivals, and a robust events calendar including Expo 2020. Under the umbrella of FMCG, F&B remains one of the most robust industries for the UAE.

We want to focus on niche at the Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba Group.

Since we established our FMCG division with our company Arabian Horeca General Trading in 2018, we have made concerted efforts to cater to discerning customers.

For instance, we think of you as a discerning customer, a person who cares about origin of ingredients and manufacturing processes. You care about how transparent a company is areas of ethical production. And you also support products that are healthier, sustainable, and natural.

Majority of our FMCG categories represent differentiated offerings with brands such as Trucillo coffee, La Romana gelato shop and premium water Healsi.
