Tuesday, February 19, 2013

GAC Bahrain has its commitment to ethical business practices confirmed with certification by TRACE International.

TRACE International Inc. is a non-profit membership association that offers practical and cost-effective anti-bribery and anti-corruption
compliance solutions for multinational companies. To gain certification, GAC Bahrain underwent a series of extensive evaluations throughout 2012, including a due diligence review.

GAC Bahrain is one of the largest shipping and forwarding agencies in the country. Its Logistics Centre in Muharraq is the first of its kind in Bahrain, offering multi-modal options – road, sea, and air – under one roof. The company also operates a container freight station/bonded warehouse within Mina Salman dry cargo port.

The company's TRACE certification comes after it recently became the first shipping and logistics company in the country to receive the Integrated Management System (IMS) certification signifying its high standards of logistics management for a variety of sectors, including the oil and gas industry. GAC Bahrain is also OSHA certified.

Managing Director Mikael Leijonberg says: "Together, these certifications represent a clear recognition of our firm commitment to the highest industry standards in everything we do."
