Ship Agency

The global ship agent you need

Acting as a General Agent, GAC Japan provides ship agency services to vessels calling at all ports and terminals in the country through our local partners.

GAC Japan was first established in 1988 as a Marketing & Sales office of the GAC Group. We turned into a full-fledged operational office in 2014, offering a full range of shipping services as a General Agent at all ports and terminals in Japan. We work with local agents, towage companies and other service providers to deliver agency services at all ports and terminals throughout the country.

Our agency services cater to all kinds of vessels, from container ships, bulk cargo carriers to Ro-Ro vessels and tankers; and all cargo types from grains, cement, steel, minerals to crude, LNG, LPG and chemicals.

We serve Japan’s burgeoning energy sector which sees an increasing number of LNG and coal shipments arriving at the country’s terminals and attend to a growing number of navy vessel calls.

Whatever you need

We go beyond the standard ship agency services with an extensive range of complementary services covering global hub agency, husbandry, bunker fuel supplies, ship spares logistics, underwater hull cleaning and more. Whether you’re controlling an entire fleet or a single vessel, our comprehensive portfolio of services can be tailored to your needs.

GAC’s tailor-made solutions keep you fully informed of your vessel’s status prior to, during and after the port call while we promptly meet your needs and adapt to changing conditions. To further aid efficient operations planning, our free daily intelligence services Hot Port News is a trusted source of the latest news on port conditions worldwide.

Safety, security, quality and corporate compliance are our watch words. GAC Japan is committed to meeting the highest standards, honesty and transparency in everything we do.

We are alongside and at your service in port or at sea, around the clock.
