Increased focus on clean product imports has driven GAC Brazil’s expansion into the north-east of the country with its 11th office opening at the Port of Fortaleza.
“Fortaleza is the capital of Ceara state and a major port city,” says Luciana Laranjeiras, GAC Brazil’s Commercial Manager, Northeast. “It has been identified as strategic to GAC’s growth in the LNG import market in the coming years.”
The new office is located between GAC’s existing north-east bases in São Luis and Recife and also covers ship agency operations at the nearby Mururipe and the Pecém port complexes.
Rodrigo Kill, GAC Brazil’s Shipping Manager, says: “This is the latest stage of our strategy in the Brazilian clean products market, covering the major north-east states that import diesel and other clean products. Customers benefit from our local agency service boosted by our intel assistance including daily port line-ups.”
