According to GWC chairman Sheikh Abdulla bin Fahad bin Jassem bin Jabor Al Thani, they are pursuing all opportunities to ensure they remain the provider of choice for innovative logistics and supply chain solutions.

The company’s comprehensive solutions have set a benchmark for logistics excellence in the market, which in turn has led to new contracts and opportunities.

GWC was entrusted to carry out the complex logistics requirements for the tournament as its official logistics provider.
The company’s continued excellence in developing logistics infrastructure, such as the Logistics Village Qatar, the GWC Bu Sulba Warehousing Park, and the oil and gas client-specific logistics bases in Ras Laffan Industrial City, also led to a new ‘Develop-Build-Finance-Operate-Transfer’ contract with Manateq for the establishment of the 1.48 million square metre Al Wukair Logistics Park.
GWC has earned the trust of the market by delivering the best in logistics and supply chain solutions following the highest quality, health, safety, security, and environment standards.
