GAC Launches Ship Lay-up Solutions

Thursday, March 26, 2009

GAC has launched GAC Ship Lay-up Solutions, a new service package to help owners/operators avoid non-profitable journeys, and reduce wear & tear, fuel consumption and insurance premiums during periods of low demand.

When demand for ocean freight is low and rates are depressed, laying-up a vessel can be the best option during the idle period. And now, under the umbrella of its Shipping Services and Solutions, GAC is offering vessel owners/operators and ship management companies fully-customizable, cost-effective solutions for laying-up vessels around the world.

GAC Ship Lay-Up Solutions (GLUS) offers its customers a choice of lay-up locations around the world as well as a comprehensive range of maintenance services for their vessel’s lay-up period. GLUS provides a fully tailored package to meet the requirements of every client and their specific vessel in their area of trade.

In addition to providing ship agency, supplies services and logistics, the GLUS range of services include: lay-up preparation & documentation, safety and security advice, maintenance and inspection of machinery and equipment, as well as regular monitoring of vessel moorings and safe berth.
