January 3, 2023

The year 2022 was a year of triumph, and it culminated in an unforgettable celebration for Qatar for hosting the best FIFA World Cup in history.

For GWC, the leading logistics provider, it was an endorsement of the company’s confidence in delivering seamless logistical execution of hosting the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

GWC celebrated the success by honouring the outstanding team that delivered on the 2022 commitment to achieve glory. This recognition comes from the company’s ethos in the importance of appreciating every sincere work and distinguished effort.

Speaking about this, GWC Chairman Shaikh Abdulla bin Fahad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani said, “Delivering the World Cup was a huge and complex logistics mandate and required immense coordination, agile execution, and quick thinking, and the GWC team delivered on all counts. The team serves with so much dignity and pride in what they do.”

“The World Cup made Qatar the center of the world for that one month and it was up to the GWC team to ensure that people all over the world remember our nation’s achievements, and the team delivered beautifully,” he added.

GWC Group CEO Ranjeev Menon said, “A human-centered supply chain model has been at the heart of GWC since the very beginning in 2004. Port executives, skilled warehousemen, packing specialists, delivery drivers, installation crew, inventory experts, quality supervisors, safety experts, and line managers to name a few. Building a strong people-driven workforce of 5,000+ spread across diverse geographies around the world and seasoned to tackle logistical challenges at scale.”

“It is an honour to lead such a dedicated and responsive workforce. The successful execution of this World Cup wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment and diligence of GWC staff. For more than a decade, every member of GWC’s team has performed their role remarkably, thus setting a benchmark for professionalism,” Menon said.

GWC’s workforce occupies a very important part of the company’s mandate for employee welfare. For this very purpose, GWC set up a fan zone during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 for all the GWC staff which witnessed a huge turnout throughout the tournament and gave the employees a sense of what they have worked to achieve. The fan zone featured a live screening of all the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 matches, bringing them closer to the actual event and echoing the ambiance of the stadiums.
