We’ve opened our own office in Panama, providing full shipping services to vessels calling at Panamanian ports or transiting the Panama Canal.
Panama’s strategic location and having the U.S. as its most important trading partner make it a natural extension for GAC in the Americas region. Services include agency, husbandry, spares delivery, crew matters and repairs.
Bob Bandos, GAC’s Group Vice President – Americas, says: “Our expansion into Panama reaffirms the Group’s long-term commitment to the Americas region. We are confident that Panama will be an important contributor to our global network as well as to our local customers.”
Heading up the GAC Panama operations is Alexei Oduber, a 27-year industry veteran well versed in all aspects of the shipping industry as well as freight forwarding in the Panama Canal.
Previously, GAC used a GAC network agent for vessels in Panama.
