GWC, the leading logistics provider in the State of Qatar, welcomed Malaysian business community led by the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) to its headquarters and the Logistics Village Qatar (LVQ) on 28 April. The attendees were presented with GWC’s various capabilities, covering integrated logistics and supply chain solutions.
The Malaysian delegation was represented by 14 representatives from different industries such as facility management, latex medical gloves, cleaning and sanitising products, stethoscope, wood, plastic composite wall tiles, fibre mastic advanced asphalt, advanced insulation material, interior design and building information modelling. This mission includes a series of exclusive sessions for Malaysian companies to collaborate with the Qatari business community on promoting their products and services.
The delegation comes amid reports that the bilateral trade volume between Qatar and Malaysia is expected to hit the QAR3.64 bn ($1 bn) mark this year. The presentation at GWC headquarters offered a general overview of the company’s abilities, highlighting the company’s freight and clearance operation.
Meanwhile, the tour highlighted the various components of the LVQ, including the wide variety of multi-purpose warehouses, distribution centres, cold-chain and purpose-specific warehouses, and the container yard. GWC worked with the delegation’s mission to explore the possibility of further future collaboration and partnerships between the two nations.
GWC’s strategically positioned LVQ offers the most comprehensive, globally recognised supply chain solutions. The GWC LVQ is organised, structured, integrated, IT-enabled, ready-to-go, and was conceived and developed on a scale that has set new benchmarks in logistics infrastructure.
