Dry Cargo Agency: Delivering commodities to the world's markets

Dry bulk

Dry bulk shipping is big business. Whether it’s coal to China, wheat from Wyoming or iron ore in India, dry bulk commodities keep the world’s machinery running, the wheels of industry turning and people fed. With strong campaigns in the country such as ‘Make in India’, industrial requirements for such cargoes continue to increase.

GAC India has been handling dry bulk commodities and vessels since the 1980s. Today, we are among the leading dry cargo agents active in diverse dry bulk markets in the country, providing unparalleled expertise and experience in delivering professional ship agency services at any location or port.

Expertise at both load and discharge ports

Whatever your cargo type, you can tap into our global network, local know-how and in-depth knowledge of all the critical stages of dry-bulk operations to achieve smooth and rapid vessel turnaround at both load and discharge ports. Whilst in port, we’ll take care of a wide scope of needs, including husbandry, liaison with cargo suppliers/receivers, surveyors and other service companies, ship spares delivery, bunker fuels supplies documentation and more.

With dry bulk, smooth turnaround becomes crucial, as multiple loadings and discharges occur along the coast. Our local teams, through their excellent relationships with regulatory authorities, are fully trained and have the expertise to handle this efficiently.

GAC India also ensures that you get the best rates from local suppliers for your dry bulk husbandry needs, and helps in the smooth coordination of the Final Disbursement Accounts. Our strong emphasis on ethics and compliance goes a long way in assisting your Captain and crew in the correct procedures to follow in port.

To further aid efficient planning of your dry bulk operations, GAC monitors port conditions for potential problems - disruption to loading or discharging, restrictions, new requirements, port authority updates and more - and reports them through our free daily Hot Port News bulletin.

So if you’re in the dry bulk business, GAC India is the agent you need to minimise time and money spent at any port in the country.
