The locations include Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Gladstone and Brisbane in Queensland; Sydney (country headquarters), Newcastle and Port Kembla in New South Wales; Melbourne in Victoria; Adelaide in South Australia; and Fremantle, Dampier and Port Hedland in Western Australia
. Each office will offer a full range of ship agency and maritime ancillary services.
Announcing GACâ€™s latest move from the Sydney headquarters, Christer SjÃ¶doff, GAC Regional Director, Asia Pacific says that it is the first time in the Groupâ€™s 51-year history that it has launched such a large number of offices in a single country within a span of just two months.
Henderson said that while the initial focus is on ship agency support, the company will introduce its extended portfolio such as GAC Fire, Rescue and Safety services, GAC Marine Logistics, as well as GAC-SMHI weather routing for safer voyage in stages at a later date.
