GAC Egypt was set up in 1996 in preparation for the privatisation of shipping agency services in the country, which came into effect two years later. Today, GAC Egypt is a trusted provider of a range of shipping and logistics services, including specialised expert assistance for vessels transiting the Suez Canal.
GAC Egypt’s head office is in Cairo and there are branches in Alexandria, Alexandria Port, Damietta, Port Said, Safaga, Ain Sokhna, Sharm El-Sheik and Cairo International Airport, covering all Egyptian air and seaports.
Our experienced and professional staff provide expert support for all vessel types including tankers, breakbulk, cruise liners and superyachts. Our full agency and related services for vessels and rigs cover typical agency services supported by a range of added value options such as bunker fuels, hull cleaning, dry-docking and launch services. We also provide a complete range of logistics services, including project logistics, ship spares logistics and supply chain management. The newest addition to our product portfolio – aviation services – the safe and timely supply of high-quality aviation fuels at all Egypt airports and beyond.
It’s all underpinned by our commitment to ensuring compliance, honesty and transparency in everything we do, as evidenced by the GAC Group’s strict Code of Ethics (Anti-Corruption & Bribery, Anti-Money Laundering, Sanctions and Data Privacy policies) and robust HSSE management systems. All operations are ISO 14001, ISO 9001:2015, OHSAS 18001, FIATA, IATA and TRACE certified.
