GAC South Africa has opened its fifth branch office to provide a portfolio of shipping services for oil & gas projects and LPG shipments at Port Elizabeth and neighbouring port Ngqura (Coega).

The company has served customers with vessels calling at Port Elizabeth through a sub-agent for more than ten years and is now expanding its operations in the region in response to growing demand for GAC’s range of shipping, logistics and complementary services.

“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 global experience of the GAC Group combined with our local skills ensures we continue to provide world-class support.”

Services provided include ship agency, husbandry, bunker 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.
