MALAYSIA: Increasing demand from GAC Malaysia’s FMCG clients for storage space and distribution services, and anticipated growth in contract logistics services in the Country, has led to the company opening a new warehousing and distribution facility which more than doubles its previous capacity.

The 4,000-pallet position ambient racked facility in Bukit Raja, Selangor, replaces the company’s previous facility in Shah Alam, which had a capacity of 1,500 pallet positions. It is well connected to major sea and air ports, located just 22km from Port Klang Seaport (Northport), 29km from

Port Klang Seaport (Westport) and 56km from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Its features include a selective pallet racking system, hydraulic loading bays and 24-hour monitored security and fire protection.

GAC Malaysia’s Managing Director John Tansey says: “Malaysia is one of the world’s largest trading nations, and logistics plays a crucial role in its trade and economic growth. As a gateway to ASEAN and the region and with a well-developed transport infrastructure, the country is an attractive location for multinational companies to house their operations.

“We are ready to serve the warehousing and distribution needs of an increasing number of companies that outsource their logistics activities to third party logistics services providers with our new and bigger facility.”

GAC has been providing contract logistics and distribution services in Malaysia since 1994 and has a network of offices in Petaling Jaya, Melaka, Ipoh, Penang, KLIA, Port Klang, Johor, Lumut, Bintulu, Kemaman and Labuan.
