DUBAI: November 12, 2018. GAC Dubai has officially opened its new purpose-built contract logistics facility at Dubai South, 25 years after it established its first building.

The two-chamber temperature- and humidity-controlled facility, with a capacity for nearly 50,000 pallets, is designed to handle fast-moving consumer goods, food & beverages, beauty products and dangerous goods Classes 2, 3, 5.1 and 8.

GAC Dubai"GAC was a pioneer when we arrived in Dubai in 1967, and when we opened the region's first distribution centre in 1993. Our latest addition in Dubai South continues that pioneering tradition,” noted GAC Group president, Bengt Ekstrand. "I firmly believe this new facility will give our customers the highest standards of service, security and cost-effectiveness in the UAE."

The US$27 million facility is the largest in the company’s history and brings its total capacity to over 170,000 pallet positions in the Jebel Ali and Dubai Airport Free Zones.

“The new Dubai South contract logistics facility has been designed to meet a higher standard than what is currently available in the market, from operational efficiency and dynamism through to environmental systems,” adds Neil McMaster, GAC Dubai’s general manager for Contract Logistics. “The facility has been extremely well-received, and this is thanks to the dedication and synergy of the team that worked on this project.”
