GAC opens new warehouse in Malaysia


GAC has announced that it has opened a new warehouse at the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) in Johor State, Malaysia. The new warehouse was prompted by a growing demand for storage and distribution services.

Catering to the needs of the FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) sector, the 117,000 sq ft, 9,000-pallet position ambient racked facility is in a Free Zone area to take advantage of exemption on customs and excise duties for imports and exports, subject to approval from the relevant authorities. It is located within the port to facilitate the efficient and cost-effective movement of goods, as well as simplified customs procedures. The warehouse features a selective pallet racking system, hydraulic loading bays and 24-hour monitored security and fire protection.

PTP is well connected by sea, road and rail to the rest of the world. It is linked to Singapore via the second Malaysia-Singapore expressway and the north-south highway, and also has good connections with Thailand.

“This close proximity allows us to fulfil most retail deliveries to Singapore within 24 hours, and to Bangkok city within four days,” said Sue Soo, GAC Malaysia’s General Manager of Freight Forwarding.

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