Ship Agency

GAC Norway is the country’s oldest shipping agency. Established in 1845 as Ole R. Olsen, it merged with the GAC Group in 2007 to become GAC Norway AS.

Since then the company has handled over 12,000 vessels in more than 100 ports along the Norwegian coast. We have branch offices in all the key O&G locations along the Norwegian coast, from Hammerfest in the north to Stavanger in the south. Our head office is in Bergen.

Bonded warehousing enables us to meet your needs for ship spares logistics and bonded storage. We handle around 12,000 shipments every year.

GAC Norway’s clients include prominent oil and shipping companies, surveyors and Engineering, Procurement & Construction companies (EPCs). Each branch office is available and working 24/7 and all necessary security measures are in place to optimise access control and minimise delivery time and costs.
