LGW clarifies the services we provide and encourages ideas to develop
existing and new services. It has made a difference in that it
highlights business opportunities both within and outside of the GAC
Group. As a Group, we have the knowledge and the experience to succeed.
It is about bringing the different sectors of the business together to
work as one to score many goals. Everyday we encounter opportunities
and GAC is about grasping these opportunities and turning them into
People are different with different views, but putting everyone
together with open dialog generates energy. A business with no barriers
can accomplish great things and I believe the G2G global community can
push the boundaries for a better, more profitable business. Fellow
logisticians can exchange information, gain knowledge and focus on
providing the first class services we are here to provide. A can-do
attitude makes things happen and the benefits gained from G2G
inter-business relations pay dividends, lower costs – higher profits.
Sharing business intelligence allows many to accomplish great things
on a big scale. It is a powerful aspect of our business and hence, for
me, has a very high value. Everyone knows information is power, and
sharing it makes us powerful.

As an example, the LGW course established that Oman possibly has a
lot of warehousing opportunity. If it was possible to bring the
warehousing opportunities Syamkumar Kulangara sees in the Oil & Gas
industry and align it with the warehousing opportunities Achuthan
Sasidharan (GAC DXB) mentioned were in Oman, perhaps something could
happen! If you include the assistance of GAC Energy, GAC DXB’s
warehousing experience and some GAC Spirit, we have the solutions and
may only need to align everything together. Of course, we would need to
investigate and plan, etc, but with a can-do attitude we can accomplish
LGW inspires and encourages individuals to understand the current
business and to take the knowledge forward, to think of new ideas and
try to develop the business. I think the course gives GAC the
ammunition and we have to go out there and use it. With proactive
attitudes, vision and action, the knowledge and concepts gained from the
course will improve our bottom line profits.

LGW has broadened my horizon of understanding the business that we do
in GAC. Since we are associated with GAC Energy, I have realized that
we can try to plug in GML and GPL to our operations by doing a little
more than what we are doing at the moment.
I would like to draw your attention to Mr. Lars Safverstrom's
editorial in one of the editions of GAC Chat, where he gave the example
of a salesman who just sold the nice suit to a customer that the
customer wanted. Nothing wrong in it. He did his job. But he could have
made an attempt to sell him a shirt, a pair of socks, a pair of
cuff-links, a tie, etc just by asking if the customer wanted them.
LGW opens your eyes to various services that we provide and certainly
puts us in a better position to sell ourselves as a one-stop shop.
Even though we exist globally, not everybody is aware what a
difference we can make when we combine together. With that in view I
feel G2G is a unique concept, which not only brings various GAC offices
across the world together, it also builds a strong relationship among
the colleagues, which will boost the confidence level and assist in a
big way to explore and increase business on a broader and longer
platform. Of course, wherever you go.
I feel it is of utmost importance for all of us to share business
intelligence with each other. We must pass the relevant information to
our other offices where the business is about to take place and we are
aware of it. Any small information can lead to a big business.
I have written this before and I repeat that I admire what Mr. Erwin
Coelho, Business Manager, GAC Bahrain believes in. According to him, "In
every lead there is an opportunity and in every opportunity there is a
lead." I fully agree with him.
People work in various departments in GAC and I am sure many of them
are not aware of our full potential and the diversified operations that
we are involved in. For example a person looking after air-import/export
cargo business may not be aware of the activities of GPL or GAC Energy
etc. Therefore once they are enrolled in a course like LGW their
horizons will not only broaden, they can also start thinking out of the
box to smell more business and pass on the lead or vital information to
the people in relevant departments to follow up.
The rules for work are changing. We are being judged by a new
yardstick; not just by how smart we are, or by our training and
expertise, but also by how well we handle ourselves and each other. LGW
is one such platform which will propel candidates to a new world of
