GAC Opens New Office in Taiwan

GAC Opens New Office in Taiwan

GAC has set up a new office in Kaohsiung, Taiwan to cater to the growing demand for ship agency services in the country.

GAC first entered into the Taiwanese market in 1999, and their prime focus has been on their mainstay logistics business, and worked with local partners to provide ship agency services. However, growing demand in recent years has prompted the establishment of another GAC office close to Kaohsiung Port, the country’s largest international harbor, and complements the main office in Taipei.

Kenny So, GAC Taiwan’s Managing Director, notes that the location of the office was carefully selected in view of the fact that Kaohsiung is on key American, European and Asian navigation routes, making it an important gateway and cargo hub for Taiwan’s imports and exports.

GAC’s Group Vice President for Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent, Lars Bergström, says the opening of the office is timely, reflecting the symbiotic relationship between freight and shipping business, “GAC has a strong track record in the local freight market and several Taiwanese bulk shipping vessels are our existing ship spares customers. Our competitive advantage lies in our ability to provide integrated logistics and shipping services to customers who prefer a single point of contact. Establishing our own shipping operation to complement our logistics offering is a logical and strategic move. Taiwan is the third largest cruise market in Asia and there are government plans to attract more cruise liners to call at its ports, and this bodes well for GAC’s shipping services.”
