Dubai, 20 November 2014 – Global shipping, marine and logistics services provider GAC walked away from Lloyd’s List Middle East & Indian Subcontinent (MEISC) Awards with both prizes it was shortlisted for in recognition of the quality logistics and maritime services it provides throughout the region. It was the fourth time the company scooped the Logistics Award since 2010.


Lars Bergström, Group Vice President for the Middle East, says the prestigious awards acknowledge GAC’s historic commitment to innovation to provide new, valued added solutions for its clients: "In the Middle East, GAC has been recognised as one of the leaders in our fields for decades, but we are determined not to rest on our laurels. We are always looking for new, better ways to serve our customers – whether it’s with state-of-the-art tracking technology in our Distribution Centres or in the form of the revolutionary HullWiper underwater hull cleaning system now available at four ports in the region."

Andrew Leach, Group Vice President for the Indian Subcontinent adds: "GAC is a constant work in progress, especially in the highly complex and challenging Indian Subcontinent. We have established a name for ourselves in this region and become a leading player in the shipping and logistics industries, with a solid reputation for service quality and strong business ethics. These awards recognise our commitment and contributions to this region, and we will continue to adapt and evolve to help our customers achieve their strategic goals."
