GWC (Q.P.S.C.), Qatar’s leading logistics provider, has welcomed H.E. Mr. Kithsiri Athulathmudali Ambassador of Sri Lanka to the State of Qatar at the Logistics Village Qatar (LVQ) during a site tour to get a general idea about GWC’s offering and the Sri Lankan Employees on August 17, 2019. The visit included a tour of the landmark integrated logistics hub, offering bespoke supply chain logistics and warehousing solutions, spanning 1-million square meter infrastructure; the largest logistics hub of its kind in the region. His Excellency was received by Ms. Tia Prang, Senior Director of Human Resources and Mr. Mohammad Daoud, Senior Manager of Corporate Communications, as well as a number of officials from both parties.

15 km off the Hamad Port, 18 km from Hamad International Airport, just 2 km from Doha’s main industrial area, and immediately accessible through the country’s G-Ring Road, GWC’s strategically positioned LVQ offers the most comprehensive, globally recognized supply chain solutions. Organized, structured, integrated, IT enabled, and “ready-to-go”, the LVQ was conceived and developed on a scale that has set new benchmarks in logistics infrastructure.

Speaking at the LVQ, H.E. Mr. Kithsiri Athulathmudali, Ambassador of Sri Lanka to the State of Qatar stated: “Its’s a great pleasure visiting your organization and the facilities provided to your employees. I’m extremely impressed with what I saw, not only from health and welfare perspective; but in general, how GWC is providing work life balance to its employees. It’s been a fantastic experience and I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the team and working with you in the future in order to enhance your organization providing you with skilled employment from Sri Lanka, as well as continue our dialogue of mutual interest.”

LVQ harnesses highest standards for health and safety, fire suppression and security within the premises, allowing for optimum handling of goods stored within. Environment protection is also taken seriously when it comes to the use of packaging materials and recyclables. The company implements reduce, reuse and recycle (RRR) practices at all times to achieve this objective. A multinational work force lives in high standards accommodation buildings while entertainment and living needs being secured for them.

“It was a pleasure to host H.E. the Ambassador of Sri Lanka at LVQ, showcasing what Qatar is capable of, while reviewing possible avenues of collaboration,” stated Mrs. Tia Prang, Sr. Director of Human Resources at GWC. “The grand vision behind developing the LVQ was to provide regional and international companies with customizable, instantly operational platforms to meet their logistics needs, while maintaining and developing highly qualified human talent capable of handling their tasks in a safe and loving environment.”
