Goldman Sachs Asset Management will work alongside existing investors (led by KKR) and our management team to support and pursue our strategic ambition to drive further adoption of our sustainable, high quality and cost-efficient solution, ultimately to expand our position as a leading supply chain partner within the returnable logistics sector across the globe.
Goodpack is the largest global provider of metal container solutions (in the form of Intermediate Bulk Containers or “IBCs”) primarily used for the transport and storage of rubber and food products, among others. Headquartered in Singapore, the company owns a fleet of over 4 million IBCs and benefits from an extensive global network spanning over 70 countries with 5,000 delivery and collection points. The reliable provision and collection of IBCs, as part of a circular proposition, is at the heart of the complex supply chains of Goodpack’s customers.
Goodpack is also an innovator in developing cost-efficient, safe and sustainable transportation and storage solutions for challenging payloads, including rubber (natural and synthetic), food, automotive components and other industrial goods. Goodpack employs specialists, operations teams and container depots around the world to lean-out customer supply chain processes, increase global resilience, and reduce the carbon footprint at the same time.
Eric Grégoire, CEO of Goodpack said, "Over the past two decades, Goodpack has become an enabler of global supply chain ecosystems and has established itself as a trusted partner in delivering integrated solutions to customers in demanding industry sectors. We are delighted with Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s investment in the Company and believe this is a further validation of Goodpack's attractive growth prospects and strong infrastructure characteristics."
