GAC India has been named the Top Steamer Agent at Krishnapatnam Port for the financial year 2018-2019. This award was made in recognition of “the company’s outstanding performance as a ship agent, as well as the fact that it handled the most port calls throughout the period.”
From April 2018 to January 2019, the number of port and coastal calls handled by GAC India at the port increased 82% and 3000% respectively year-on-year. GAC Krishnapatnam’s Assistant Manager, Shipping Services, Nagaraja Sekhar, noted that the company had benefitted from a rise in transshipment activities at the port. He said, “The demand for agency services has increased as a result of the growth in transshipment volumes and the demand for coal. In particular we are acting as port agents for an increasing number of coastal vessels carrying thermal coal to Krishnapatnam.”
GAC made its first foray into the Indian Subcontinent in 1983. Today, GAC India is a leading provider of shipping and logistics services throughout the country with 26 offices along the eastern and western coastlines.
