The team is equipped with the resources and experience needed for the efficient and seamless delivery of all offshore related services.

Ship Agency

With over six decades of experience in Kuwait, GAC is a well-recognised and respected industry leader and throughout the years, we have developed strong local knowledge and trusted relationships with local authorities. GAC Kuwait can ensure swift berth allocations and quick and safe turnaround of the vessels. Agency services are offered at Shuwaikh, Shuaiba, Mina Al Zour and Doha ports.

Crew transfers

We coordinate all aspects of crew handling in Kuwait and Iraq including crew and visit visa services, meet & greet, hotel bookings and airport transfers. Efficient crew movement has always been a challenge for all ship owners, operators and managers, but GAC Kuwait’s offshore team is well equipped and experienced to coordinate efficient crew movement, minimise delays and ensures your crew is well taken care of during the transfer. Our well-established relationships with local authorities and the hospitality sector ensure that we deliver a cost-effective service.

Cash to Master

We offer safe and prompt coordination for providing cash to Master at all Kuwaiti ports. Once the funds are received, minimum lead time is required to hand the cash safely to Masters.

Ship spares

With more than 300 offices in over 50 countries worldwide and with experienced staff on-ground providing local intelligence, we are able to offer cost-effective solutions while maintaining the highest standards of quality for all your procurement needs. GAC Kuwait has excellent customs clearance know-how to effectively coordinate your last mile delivery.

Our warehouse in the Kuwait Free Trade Zone at Shuwaikh Port is well-suited for both transit cargo and ship spares in transit, helping you save on customs duty and shipments can be cleared with minimum documents.

Husbandry Services

GAC Kuwait offers supply and coordination of bunker fuels, fresh water, stores and provisions. The offshore team is experienced and equipped with the local knowledge to manage and coordinate the efficient supply of marine fuels and lubricants (through GAC Bunker Fuels), fresh water, stores and provisions, and provide any other husbandry services as required. We have good relationships with carefully selected suppliers, all of whom meet internationally approved standards, to ensure seamless deliveries to vessels.

Work permits and temporary Customs declarations

Timely coordination of crew work permits and temporary customs declaration (Bayan system) for vessels on short and long term projects in Kuwait plays a crucial role in minimising project delays. The offshore team can assist with preparing the necessary crew work permits from Ministry of Communication and customs declaration (Bayan system) from General Administration of Customs to ensure timely placement of the vessels and crew on site.
