Monday, February 21, 2011

GAC’s global shipping network has been further strengthened with the signing of an alliance agreement with Bahamian agency Elnet Maritime Co. Ltd., to form GAC-Elnet, effective 1 March 2011. Elnet Maritime Co. Ltd. was founded by shipping veteran Elbert ‘Ellie’ Hepburn in 2008 after serving a variety of top managerial positions at agencies in Grand Bahamas. Since then, the company has provided effective and efficient first-class agency services to Principals with vessels calling at ports throughout The Bahamas.

Those credentials made Elnet the natural choice as a GAC Network Agent when the Group decided to expand its network to The Bahamas in response to the growing demands of its clients, in particular oil majors operating and using the country’s storage terminals.  

“Throughout its history, GAC’s growth has been opportunistic and customer-driven to meet the needs of our clients – and this latest move into The Bahamas is another example of that,” says Lars Heisselberg, GAC’s Group Vice President for the .

“The professionalism and performance of Elnet Maritime make it an easy match to the values of GAC. Expansion in the makes strong business, and Elnet Maritime is the ideal partner to help make that happen.”
