GAC Sri Lanka opens new container yard


GAC Logistics Sri Lanka and Hemas Transportation have opened a new 30,000 sq m container yard with a capacity of 6,000 TEUs at their joint integrated logistics facility in the Muthurajawela Industrial Zone, Wattala.

It is the latest development in the partnership between the two companies, under the name Spectra Logistics. Work has already begun on the next phase, with a distribution centre due to be completed by June this year.

Niranjan Nallaratnam, CEO of Spectra Logistics, is confident the yard will become one of the most active facilities of its kind in the country: “Once the distribution centre is completed, Spectra Logistics will become one of Sri Lanka’s biggest integrated logistics providers offering end-to-end logistics services to support a scalable and cost effective supply chain for our customers.”

Built on 15 acres of land within the logistics city designated in the government’s Western Region Megapolis Masterplan Project, the Spectra Logistics facility is strategically located between Port of Colombo and Bandaranaike International Airport.

It is fully equipped for container handling, multiple container repairing, container washing and container rigging, and more.
