FMCG Supply Chain: Accelerating your speed to market


Rapid turnover is the name of the game in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) business. Goods need to get to their markets and respond promptly to market fluctuations.

A specialist in the sector, internationally-recognised FMCG brands across many countries rely on GAC’s FMCG supply chain management to bring their product to market efficiently. By partnering with GAC, we can also help you succeed in your local markets and penetrate new ones.

Total FMCG supply chain services

Our solutions are fully customisable to meet the challenges of manufacturers and distributors of diverse FMCG cargo. From food & beverage products, household goods, cosmetics to textile, footwear, toys and wide range of other consumer goods, we have handled it all.

GAC’s contract logistics expertise includes specialisation in food grade warehousing and distribution where we serve a range of high quality dairy manufacturers by offering unparalleled HACCP Certified warehouse facilities with very high hygiene standards. Our flagship distribution centre GAC Logistics Park in Jebel Ali, Dubai has over 50,000 square metres of warehousing space dedicated to food & beverage and other FMCG cargo.

For land delivery to the end-user market, we set up local delivery models to satisfy your distribution needs to distributors or Last Mile Delivery to retail outlets. This is supported by the wide range of vehicles which we operate and managed using our Transport Management System (TMS) under our own banner or client’s livery. Our operations are compliant with Good Distribution Practice (GDP) standards.

The supply chain becomes more complex when it extends beyond domestic to regional and global distributions. With GAC’s extensive network and strategic distribution hubs, we bring additional value to customers that require regional and global distribution with our expertise in freight, customs clearance, documentation, and final delivery to the consumer.

Value-added services

Value-added services including handling, packaging and labelling sweeten the deal for many customers, including the world’s largest manufacturer of chocolate and confectionary for which GAC’s automated handling systems boost efficiency, hygiene and accuracy at its dedicated contract logistics facility in Dubai.

Returns are a major concern in the FMCG sector. GAC’s WMS has this covered too, with full tracking of reverse logistics services that includes management of merchandise returned due to damage, seasonal drop in demand, restocking, salvage, recall or excess inventory.
