GAC is tapping into the growing contract logistics business potential of the Indian Subcontinent and Middle East, with plans to further develop and expand its operations in these regions. That was the message Lars Bergström, GAC’s Group Vice President for Asia Pacific & Indian Subcontinent, had for the Group’s Contract Logistics Solutions experts who gathered in Colombo, Sri Lanka, to chart GAC’s strategy to increase its share of the business. They discussed growing demand as a result of the rise of e-commerce, last mile deliveries and technological advancements, as well as the challenges the contract logistics sector faces.
Bergström said he is optimistic about the contract logistics outlook for the Middle East, citing forecast growth rates ahead of global economic growth. GAC operates warehouses and fulfilment centres in Dubai, Qatar, Bahrain, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand, with a combined storage space of more than 450,000 square metres and over 300,000 pallet positions.
