Essberger Tankers Sign Deal with GAC
Europe’s chemical tanker operator Essberger Tankers has entrusted its ship agency requirements to Gulf Agency Company (GAC) companies in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Under the agreement, GAC will handle an estimated 600-800 port calls a year for Essberger Tankers’ fleet of vessels carrying a wide range of high-grade chemicals.
The deal comes after more than 20 years of successfully managing Essberger’s port calls in Finland. The shipping and logistics service provider’s ability to deliver the same high level of support from its expanding network of offices in Sweden, Denmark and Norway was a key factor in the deal being sealed.
The benefits of improved business processes are already evident and continuous review will ensure GAC maintains its levels of support to give Essberger the most cost-effective and efficient ship agency operations.
Peter Österman, GAC’s Commercial Manager in Scandinavia, says: “This contract with Essberger is testament to the breadth of support GAC can provide in the area, and is a clear sign that our strategy of staff investment, continuous improvement and a wide network of offices is working.
