(MENAFN- Gulf Times) Leading logistics provider GWC welcomed Indian ambassador P Kumaran at the Logistics Village Qatar (LVQ) yesterday.
He was accompanied by Indian embassy first secretary Surindar Bhagat.
The visit included a tour of the landmark integrated logistics hub, offering bespoke supply chain logistics and warehousing solutions, spanning 1mn square meter infrastructure; the largest logistics hub of its kind in the region.
'GWC's strategically positioned LVQ offers the most comprehensive, globally recognised supply chain solutions. Organised, structured, integrated, IT-enabled, and 'ready-to-go, the LVQ was conceived and developed on a scale that has set new benchmarks in logistics infrastructure, a company release said.
Kumaran said, 'I am indeed impressed by the quality of the facility, and the range of solutions and various specialised equipment that you have here. It was also a happy situation to see a lot of Indian employees, and to see the kind of passion they bring to their work. I was also impressed by the good quality of the worker accommodation you have here. I think it is very good that Qatar has put in place such high-quality warehousing facilities in recent years, and it is a welcome initiative as it will help us improve trading links between India and Qatar, and the region in general.
LVQ harnesses highest standards for health and safety, fire suppression and security within the premises, allowing for optimum handling of goods stored within. Environment protection is also taken seriously when it comes to the use of packaging materials and recyclables. The company implements reduce, reuse and recycle (RRR) practices at all times to achieve this objective. 'It was a pleasure to host HE the ambassador of India at LVQ, showcasing what Qatar is capable of, while reviewing possible avenues of collaboration, said Matthew Phelps, general manager at GWC.
'The grand vision behind developing the LVQ was to provide regional and international companies with customisable, instantly operational platforms to meet their logistics needs, and we are fully prepared to meet the growing demand for logistical support and expertise.
