FPS Sri Lanka opens Galle office in South of country


FPS Sri Lanka has opened a new office in Galle, 120km

The new office will act as a satellite of FPS’ main Colombo operations centre, providing the company’s full portfolio of multi-modal forwarding, logistics and consolidation services to the local business community, and acting as a local control centre for the entire southern region, including the port of Hambanthota.

South western tip

Situated on the south western tip of Sri Lanka, Galle is the country’s fourth largest city, with 900,000 inhabitants (Galle Fort was the iconic image displayed at the 2013 FPS AGM, held in Colombo). It is the administrative capital and main port city of the southern province, and incorporates a free trade zone for the manufacture of garments and other accessories. The area is also a major producer of spices, coconut products and handicrafts. Exports and imports through the new office are expected to be well balanced.


Connections

Galle is well-served by rail and road connections; the new Southern Expressway is Sri Lanka’s first E Class highway, linking the city with the Sri Lankan capital, and cutting journey time from three hours to one hour.

Attracting new business

“The opening of the new office will provide strong support to the steady growth in FPS Sri Lanka’s freight forwarding business, and in its parent SAS Group of Companies’ shipping agency business”, says MD Gihan Nanayakkara. “This new base enables us to improve services to our existing customers, while attracting new business from this increasingly important region”.
