GAC Russia Expands Eastwards

GAC Russia Expands Eastwards

GAC Russia is expanding eastwards with the opening of new branches at Nakhodka and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

This latest development means that GAC Russia is the only ship agent with a presence throughout the interconnected Arctic region and Far East. As the Russian Federation focuses on developing political and economic relations with the Asia-Pacific region, the country’s Far East has moved to the top of the agenda.

Arkady Podkopaev, GAC Russia’s General Manager, says: “GAC has been active in Russia since 2001 and has built a strong network of offices in the European part of the country. The time is now right for us to expand eastwards to provide the GAC brand of professional ship agency and husbandry services to our customers operating in the Far East, which has a coastline of over 5,000 miles and covers 22 maritime ports.”

The region includes a Free Port Zone established in 2015 covering Vladivostok, Nakhodka, Korsakov and several other ports. Close to the borders with China, Japan, and Korea, the area is a hub for trade with imports coming in from Asia, which are transferred to other vessels or the Trans-Siberian Railway, one of the region’s key transportation lanes, for distribution to the rest of the vast nation. The Free Port Zone aims to boost trade and shipping activities with tax benefits, single windows for border control, duty free, tax free import/export, and simplified visa procedures.

Podkopaev concluded: “The region offers a wealth of business opportunities for our integrated services, and those opportunities are set to become even more plentiful as a result of the Free Port Zone.”
