The South Africa branch of integrated shipping, logistics and marine services provider GAC has expanded operations with the opening of a fifth branch at Port Elizabeth, it says.
The company has served customers with vessels calling at Port Elizabeth through a sub-agent for more than 10 years, and is now expanding its operations in the region in response to growing demand for its range of shipping, logistics and complementary services.
The branch will be able to provide a portfolio of shipping services for oil & gas projects and LPG shipments at Port Elizabeth as well as its neighbouring port Ngqura (Coega).
“Increasing our presence to include Port Elizabeth allows us to offer a complete package of integrated services for all types of business at the port,” says Eric Barnard, Managing Director for GAC Shipping.
“The combined global experience of the GAC Group and our local skills ensures we continue to provide world-class support.”
Services provided at the new branch includes ship agency, husbandry, bunker fuel supplies, offshore support, dry-docking and project logistics, as well as lay-ups and repairs for rigs and vessels calling at Ngura (Coega).
GAC Shipping covers all major South African ports from its head office in Cape Town and branches in Saldanha Bay, Durban, Richards Bay and – now – Port Elizabeth.
