There are times when you need to rely on a preferred ship agent to act as your eyes and ears on the spot to supervise the charterers’ agency function and monitor your port operations to protect your interests. That’s where GAC China’s protective agency package come in.


At ports in China, we offer vessel owners and operators a scalable protective service to complement our range of ship agency, husbandry, ship spares delivery and other support options.
