The list of industry gongs won by the GAC Group has grown again after it won two categories at the prestigious Lloyd's Loading List Global Freight Awards.

GAC Pindar’s marine sport, leisure and event logistics know-how earned it the Specialist Freight Solutions Provider of the Year over stiff competition from five other finalists. The company provides specialist logistics support to sailing events like the Volvo Ocean Race, the America’s Cup and the Extreme Sailing Series as well as to individual customers in the yachting sector.

The award was accepted by GAC Pindar’s Operations Manager Beth King, who says: “It is wonderful to receive such recognition, especially at a time when we are ‘all hands on deck’ with the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race. This win is a validation of all our efforts, both for such large clients and for smaller customers with very specific needs.”

Our second win of the evening was in the Project/Heavylift Forwarder of the Year category, acknowledging GAC’s performance in the demanding field of project logistics. It is the second time the GAC Group has won the award.

“It's a real testament to the hard work of our project logistics people to have their efforts rewarded once more,” says Group Sales Director Neil Godfrey, who accepted the award. “Our seamless mega moves cover a wide range – from the world's biggest underwater restaurant to multi-origin mega shipments destined for an oil field in the Northern Caspian.”
