GAC Marine Logistics (GML) has established a new company in Hamburg as the latest addition to its growing network of offices coordinating ship spares logistics around the world.

The new company GAC Marine Logistics GmbH, which starts trading on February 1, further develops GML’s door-to-deck delivery and warehousing products and builds on existing strong relationships in key markets such as West Africa, South America and the Middle East, the company said.

Jan Kielmann, Director of Global Marine Logistics, said that Hamburg's burgeoning cargo volumes and Germany's position as the world's second largest shipping market makes the city the perfect location.

GML clients benefit from the ability to draw on the GAC Group's many other offerings such as husbandry services, hub agency and bunker fuel deliveries to create a customized support suite to meet all their time-critical ship spares logistics and related shipping needs.

“No other provider has a better understanding of the challenges our clients are facing in today's changing markets and economic climate and is better equipped to help overcome them,” added Katja Springmeyer, General Manager of GAC Marine Logistics GmbH. “For example, through our partnership with Griffin – G2 Crew & Port Services – we combine spares and crew logistics to deliver exceptional cost savings. HSSE, Compliance and Ethics are at the heart of everything we do. So too is transparency – web tracking means that our customers have complete visibility of movements at all times."
