GAC adds warehouse in Middle East

Effective January 2019, GAC will open a warehouse and open storage yard at the Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD), the Middle East’s largest industrial zone.

The integrated shipping, logistics and marine services provider, says the facility will serve a wide range of sectors including oil and gas, construction and specialist equipment.

GAC has been operational in Abu Dhabi since 1967, and today has facilities at Sila, Ruwais, Mussafah, Mina Zayed and Abu Dhabi International Airport. 

Samir Chaturvedi, ceo at KIZAD, commented, “Abu Dhabi is increasingly becoming a major global hub for logistics and shipping, and so it is only natural that a player of GAC’s scale and reputation would be looking to expand its presence in the Emirate.”  

GAC Abu Dhabi’s managing director, Göran Eriksson, adds: “Khalifa Port is an essential gateway to Abu Dhabi. Setting up operations at KIZAD gives us the advantage of being close to the state-of-the-art port, enabling greater operational efficiency for both GAC and our customers.”
