The highly strategic move comes in line with its expansion plans in the country to address its rapidly growing logistics sector. The new outlet will enable GES to remain ahead of the competition at a time when cost-efficient express services which involves definite door-to-door service at a highly economical price is the game changer.
With its clear vision and strategic growth plans to maintain operations and continue reform plans, the MEA Cargo Centre is the epicentre of the Lebanese economy.
The location of GES’s new branch brings it closer to all its stakeholders and partners, enabling it to deliver all air shipments within 24 hours of arrival through the combination of both air and truck freights.
