GAC Sri Lanka has been appointed as the sole authorised agent for multimodal transport operator Sarjak Container lines Pvt (Ltd), handling all their shipping and Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) activities in the country.

Sarjak specialises in the door-to-door transportation of breakbulk and over dimensioned cargo (ODC) operating a fleet of self-owned containers including Super Racks, Flat Racks, Open Top, Hard Top Open Top & GP containers. As Sarjak’s appointed agent, GAC Sri Lanka will provide project logistics and freight forwarding as well as agency services from its offices in Colombo, Galle, Hambantota and Trincomalee, covering all ports in the country. Under the contract, GAC Sri Lanka will be the only authorised agent handling Sarjak cargoes.

Capt. Rumi Engineer, Senior President, Sarjak Container Lines Pvt (Ltd), says: “There are great synergies between Sarjak and GAC in terms of our capabilities and the standard of service we deliver to our customers, so they were a natural choice for a partner in Sri Lanka. GAC’s extensive expertise and experience of our industry and its nationwide and worldwide networks will go a long way in helping us to further expand our operations in Sri Lanka and across the Indian Subcontinent.”
