GAC Philippines Inc. is of some relief to say that, after the sudden stop to our logistics operations due to the imposition of the Enhanced Community Quarantine for the whole of Luzon including Metro Manila, we have gradually regained our operational footing – for both domestic logistics, and international freight forwarding and customs brokerage.

GAC Philippines Inc. prides itself a “pharma” logistics expert at our core. In this time of great concern and confusion due to the lockdown, we have endeavored to support those who need us the most – our medical frontliners who risk their lives every day and the general Filipino public that counts on them. Rest assured, our logistics personnel on the ground – are own frontliners – heeded the call of duty as volunteers, and above all as dependable professionals…  …we are working to provide them with the Emergency Staff Support – such as lodging and/or transport, food, and hazard pay, etc. – for them to be able to do the vital task at hand, as safely as possible.

…Our focus presently is to service to the best of our abilities our Principals in the medical and pharmaceutical sector, food and agriculture, energy and oil and gas, as well as those with critical air and sea shipments. To this end, our logistics operations managers are accessible for any logistics inquiries through: logistics.philippines@gac.com  

Meanwhile, ship agency, shipping services, and vessel operations for Luzon ports continue…

…Our GAC colleagues in Manila continue to support our Principals, while observing home quarantine. Our Cebu, Davao, and CDO branches remain open...
