Qatar’s logistics market has been growing steadily over the past five years; it is estimated to be valued at more than $7.5 billion and is estimated to register a CAGR of more than 7 percent during 2021-2026. The growth of the market can be attributed to the new expansion plans as the country is hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
With massive investment in infrastructure, numerous new projects, and an e-commerce boom, Qatar’s logistics sector has been expanding rapidly, a development that GWC is committed to support as a leading logistics provider and the Authorized Service Contractor of UPS in Qatar.
Following the recent launched of its logistics hub in Qatar’s Ras Bufontas Free Zone, GWC welcomed Scott Price, President, UPS International, reaffirming a long-lasting business relationship.
UPS’s leadership visit comes at a time when the nation is gearing up for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM for which GWC plays the role of Regional Supporter and Official Logistics Provider.
Price met up with GWC Chairman Sheikh Abdullah bin Fahad Al Thani and Ranjeev Menon, Group CEO to discuss the dynamic logistics sector in Qatar, the work being done by GWC and ways to collaborate in the future.
Price also took a tour of the GWC’s flagship Logistics Village Qatar, which has set a new benchmark in logistics infrastructure.
