GAC Malaysia has opened a warehousing and distribution facility in Malaysia to meet growing demands for contract logistics services in the country.
GAC has been providing contract logistics and distribution services in the country since 1994 and has a network of offices in Petaling Jaya, Melaka, Ipoh, Penang, KLIA, Port Klang, Johor, Lumut, Bintulu, Kemaman and Labuan. The new facility 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 22 km from Port Klang Seaport (Northport), 29 km from Port Klang Seaport (Westport) and 56 km 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 stated, “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.”
