With over 25 years’ experience behind him, Ranjeev Menon has led Gulf Warehousing Company (GWC) to become one of the fastest growing companies in the MENA region with year-on-year CAGR of 73% in net profits since he took control of the organisation.

Under his leadership, the company has grown its logistics infrastructure to nearly 2 million square meters, offering every supply chain solution across nearly a dozen facilities and logistics hubs, while bringing the best breed of international express courier under GWC’s umbrella.

GWC began offering the range of UPS services after the inauguration of its new flagship outlet located on D-Ring Road in June 2015.

Last month, GWC announced phase five of expansion works for Logistics Village Qatar, which it developed, is underway and in December 2014, GWC won a contract to build the $188m Bu Sulba logistics hub dedicated to SMEs in Doha.
