Hub Agency

Shipping is a global business, and with GAC you can reap the benefits of cost controls, efficiency and consistently high standards of integrated shipping services through a single point of contact, log-in system, invoice and bank account for funds transfer wherever you go.

Hub agency

GAC is a pioneer of the global hub agency concept, developing it in response to calls for a one world, one agent approach to shipping. Since the early 1990s, we have been helping our customers make the most of our hub agency service.TRACE

The entire port call management process is simplified, focusing on saving time and money. We offer a single 24/7 contact point for financial and accounting matters, and utilise our agency capabilities to offer top-down control of cost and service levels.  

D/A management

Say goodbye to time-consuming routine tasks to focus on revenue generation, by entrusting the checking and validation of your port disbursement accounts to us. Global Hub Services act as your advocate for tighter cost control, with our experienced operations managers actively negotiating proforma and disbursement accounts on your behalf.

You can take advantage of this service without making any changes to your existing agency list. It’s offered on a neutral basis. Regardless of who is handling the port call – your own agent, one nominated by charterers, or GAC – we check your disbursement accounts with the same meticulous attention to detail.
