Agreement Strengthens GAC’s West African Presence

Press Release
Friday, December 21, 2012

GAC has signed a Global Network Agency (GNA) agreement for ports in Ghana, Togo and Benin with Oil and Marine Agencies (OMA) Ltd, effective from 1 January 2013, as part of the Group's strategic expansion in West Africa. The two companies have been working together to provide a range of shipping and logistics services since June 2010.


OMA is an established leader in agency and support services for port operations in West Africa, having started from its home port of Lome in Togo 30 years ago. In 2007, it expanded to other countries in the region, including Benin and Ghana, with a base in the Ivory Coast on the cards for 2013. Under the agreement with GAC, it covers all ports in Ghana, Togo and Benin.  


Erland Ebbersten, GAC's Group Vice President for Africa, Central Asia and Russia, notes that the corporate cultures of the two companies have many similarities, making the formation of the GAC-OMA alliance a natural addition to the GAC global network.


Gary Miller, OMA's Managing Director, says: "It is a great honour and privilege for OMA to have been accepted into the GAC fold. We are all excited by this opportunity and we look forward to adding value and developing both the GAC and OMA brands in West Africa in the years ahead."
