Global shipping and logistics services provider, GAC has bagged the ‘Best Logistics Service Provider (BLSP) Award – Perishable Logistics’ at the prestigious Third Annual Middle East Logistics Awards (MELA) held on 30th June 2009.

The 3rd MELA Awards, organised by the Media One Group, brings together the region’s key logistics industry players as they set benchmarks for performance excellence. The Awards also recognise the industry’s best practices and stellar performers who have made an impact on the Middle East logistics industry through their valuable contributions.

The winners of the 22 categories were determined by a two-phase procedure – Nomination Process and Voting Process and the results audited by international auditors Horwath MAK, official auditors for MELA. They were presented with their prizes at a prestigious gala dinner held at the Monarch hotel in Dubai.

Dan Hjalmarsson, GAC’s Regional Director for the Middle East says that the company is honoured to clinch the accolade in the specialised field of perishable logistics where absolute temperature integrity throughout the cold chain is critical in keeping the products safe, viable and fresh.

“The importance of a tight supply chain is heightened in the Gulf where outside temperature can exceed 50 degree Celsius during summer. Whether it is moving, handling, transporting or storing the perishable products, GAC has a zero-tolerance philosophy as the margin for error is zero. We wish to thank our customers and the voters for recognising our cold chain logistics capability.”
