Hemas Integrated Logistics known across the industry for its service excellence, proven track record and corporate backing, turned a new chapter in its journey when the company rebranded itself as Spectra Integrated Logistics. The rebranding was carried out as a result of Hemas going into partnership with GAC Sri Lanka which itself is a partnership between GAC Global and McLarens Holdings.
“Spectra Integrated Logistics is the union of two local giants of the shipping industry backed by a global logistics player,” commented CEO of Spectra Integrated Logistics Niranjan Nallaratnam. He further added that launching a common brand was “a strategic move to position ourselves as one of the biggest integrated logistics providers.”
The company is taking several giant steps towards expansive growth under the new brand including the establishment of a state-of-the-art container yard which will be followed by an ultramodern warehouse.
The new container yard is located in a 15 acre land within the designated logistics city in the Western Region Megapolis Masterplan Project – a locality promoted by the government as a logistics park between the Port of Colombo and the Bandaranaike International Airport. Strategically situated in the Muthurajawela Industrial Zone in Wattala, away from residential spaces, the new container yard will help the company double its existing capacity to serve the gamut of shipping lines operating in Sri Lanka.
With an investment of nearly US$ 20 million by Spectra Integrated Logistics, the new container terminal – which commenced operations following a soft opening on 22 January 2018 – is equipped with top notch modern equipment related to container handling, container repairing, container washing and container rigging to name a few.
