Executive Brief

Changing times in the warehousing industry propels serious decision among industry players around the globe.

The formation of alliances, mergers, consolidation, acquisition, is an earnest reaction to the continuously growing demand for warehousing services. “CARGO WAREHOUSING”, a highly demanded service in the airline industry, has evolved into a sophisticated cargo handling activity, comprehensively expanding its scope-encompassing total “cargo handling” services.

On November of 1998, GROUND AIR LOGISTICS CORPORATION (GALCO) was born to keep up with the challenges of time. For its initial operation as a holding and managing company, GALCO established a ground handling service provider for airlines calling at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport. However, significant events in the warehousing industry led GALCO toward expansion.

On January 28, 2003, GALCO opened its Customs Public Bonded Warehouse (#82) in Mactan-Cebu, Cargo Complex, Mactan-Cebu International Airport. GALCO is equipped with a complete line of cargo services at value-plus rates to provide the best service to its clients in the cargo industry.
