Global Logistic Properties Ltd.

Company Background

Global Logistic Properties is a leading developer and operator of logistics facilities. Its main markets are China, Japan and Brazil. GLP's warehouses serve mainly manufacturers, retailers and e-tailers, and logistics service providers. GIC, the Singaporean government fund, is the company's top shareholder with a 36% stake. During the global financial crisis at the end of 2008, GIC struck a deal to buy Chinese and Japanese assets from U.S. logistics company ProLogis. The business was named GLP; its shares were listed on the Singapore Exchange in 2010.

Ming Mei serves as GLP's CEO. A former ProLogis executive who built the U.S. company's China portfolio, he set up GLP with former Deputy Chairman Jeffrey Schwartz, another ProLogis veteran. In 2012, GLP teamed up with sovereign wealth funds to acquire several logistics facilities in Brazil. GLP and its China unit have received a series of investments from major Chinese financial institutions, such as China Life Insurance and Bank of China Group Investment. The Chinese equity partners are supporting GLP's growth in the country.
