GWC Celebrates the Success of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™

January 02, 2023

2022 was a year of triumph, and it culminated in an unforgettable celebration: the best FIFA World CupTM 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 2022TM.

GWC celebrated the success with honoring the outstanding team delivering on the 2022 commitment to deliver glory. This recognition comes from the company’s ethos in the importance of appreciating every sincere work and distinguished effort.

Speaking about this, Shaikh Abdulla Bin Fahad Bin Jassim Bin Jaber Al Thani, Chairman of GWC stated: “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 further added.

Ranjeev Menon, Group CEO of GWC commented: “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 honor 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.” Added Menon,

GWC’s workforce occupies a very important part of the company’s mandate for employee welfare. For this very purpose, GWC had set up a fan zone during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM 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 live screening of all the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM matches, bringing them closer to the actual event and echoing the ambience of the stadiums.
