Dubai-based logistics specialist GAC has opened its newest company in the South American country of Guyana. This is response to demand for professional shipping and logistics support following the discovery of large reserves of oil and gas in its waters
GAC Logistics and Shipping (Guyana) will serve the group’s current and prospective customers in this Atlantic region of South America. With operations established in nearby Trinidad & Tobago, GAC already has the experience and resources readily available to support the oil and gas industry’s service requirements in Guyana through the country’s main port in Georgetown. To provide local expertise, GAC has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work cooperatively and finalise an agreement with Guyana National Shipping Corporation.
Bob Bandos, GAC Group Vice President, Americas, says: “The start-up of GAC’s operations in Guyana is an important geographic step in expanding our regional footprint and the existing services offered in other GAC locations. Working with GNSC will benefit our local, regional and global clients in this new addition to GAC’s global reach.”
GAC will focus on recruiting from the local workforce. It will then train them through purpose-designed courses provided by its own Corporate Academy, to ensure the highest standards of professionalism and expertise.
