UAE - Gulf Pinnacle Logistics (GPL), one of the leading school bus transport providers in the UAE, aims to sign more than five new schools adding thousands of students by the end of 2018 as the company is in advanced discussions with various schools in the country, according to the top official of the company.

Gulf Pinnacle Logistics, entered into the promising student bus transportation business under the name of Gulf Pinnacle Transport in September 2016 as it identified a niche logistics market with significant growth potential. GPT envisioned itself to be a prominent student bus transportation service company by securing transportation contracts with quality schools and providing their students with world-class transportation services complemented by best-in-class security features to students, their parents and the schools.

GPT's humble beginnings were three school transportation contracts providing services to 450 students with 30 busses. In less than two years, the firm was able to expand its transportation contracts to 13 schools, served via 250 buses and catering transportation services to more than 6,000 students. This phenomenal growth is largely driven by a tremendous business development effort of its management team, operational excellence and state-of-the art technology features. GPT's portfolio of schools is a mix of highly regarded schools spread between Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah offering British, American and Indian Curriculums.
