GWC (Q.P.S.C.), Qatar’s leading logistics provider, has announced a campaign offering free warehouse evaluation as part of its Consulting services which offers warehouse development and operations optimization solutions to clients. GWC Consulting works to minimize logistics costs, increase visibility and offer better inventory control while maximizing the productivity and efficiency of warehouse operations.
Mr. Hamdan Abdulla Merchant, GWC Director of Business Process Improvement, stated: “GWC has spent the past 15 years setting a standard for local and international logistics, a standard we are now pleased to put at the disposal of our clients, offering the same experience and innovation that has made us the preferred logistics provider in the State of Qatar.”
Comprised of a team of industrial engineers, Six Sigma professionals and consulting experts, GWC Consulting brings the best practices in logistics to ensure that the client’s warehouse is both efficient and cost-effective. The solution assures a significant reduction of costs by collecting and analyzing data from the client site, allowing for the drafting of a detailed CAPEX and OPEX report. The team then suggests changes to the client’s warehousing and distribution operations, offering conceptual and detailed designs that assure clients real-time visibility over their inventory, thereby assuring business growth through improved practices.
GWC Consulting was developed through the experience gained by the company in offering consultations for clients in a variety of industries including oil and gas, aviation, retail, health care, and museums amongst others. For these clients, the company designed and implemented solutions that assure over 99% on-time order fulfilment and streamlined flow of products through the usage of LEAN processes and technology, which has resulted in practically perfect inventory accuracy. The company has also put plans in place that raise the level of warehousing operations by reducing the actual footprint required for storage through various advanced techniques and racking solutions. The team has also refined distribution management operations, allowing their clients to manage multiple deliveries through their dedicated assets.
