GAC Norway AS and Polar Logistics Group ApS (POLOG) formed a strategic partnership to further strengthen GAC's network within the Arctic Circle.

The move is the latest stage in the company's Arctic strategy to better serve the region by bringing together organizations and individuals to create a unified network of expertise, experience and local resources.

By combining GAC's shipping, logistics and marine expertise with POLOG's network throughout Greenland and ability to meet remote location logistical needs from ice runways to mountaintop camps, the alliance offers tangible benefits to the energy sector. 

Since the opening of the LNG plant in Hammerfest, Norway, in 2007 GAC has supported the increasing number of oil majors looking to move further north. GAC Spitsbergen opened in 2010 supported by Pole Position AS, followed by a joint cooperation between GAC Norway and GAC Russia - GAC's branch in Murmansk - two years later. Also in 2012, GAC and Henriksen Shipping Service AS in Kirkenes began supporting offshore operations in the Barents and Kara seas. Last year, when the LNG carrier Ob River became the first vessel of its kind to transit the Northern Sea Route (ice-free for only two months of the year), GAC was the agent.
