One agent, global coverage

The GAC Group is one of the few global organisations with the resources, reach, expertise and infrastructure to support shipping operations on a local, regional and global scale.

Our global network of 300 owned offices and trusted partners elsewhere covers thousands of locations worldwide. Our 24/7 operations are backed by in-depth local expertise and excellent relations with port authorities for fast and efficient vessel turnaround.

GAC’s range of international shipping services caters for all kinds of vessels, from container ships, bulk cargo carriers, Ro-Ro vessels and tankers to cruise liners and superyachts; and all cargo types from grains, cement, steel, minerals to crude, LNG, LPG and chemicals.

LNG support

At strategic ports like Port Qasim where vital infrastructure like the Engro Energy Terminal Limited (EETL) and Pakistan Gas Port Consortium Limited (PGPCL) LNG terminals play a pivotal role in energy distribution, our services complement and enhance operations. The EETL terminal utilises Excelerate’s FSRU - the Exquisite, which is capable of delivering up to 690 MMcf/d of natural gas directly into Sui Southern Gas Company’s natural gas pipeline system. EETL is notably one of the most cost-efficient terminals in the region. On the other hand, the PGPCL terminal is designed to moor FSRU and LNGCs in double banking arrangement. The FSRU BW Integrity is moored alongside the terminal, supporting the PGP Consortium Ltd (PGPC) project, with a re-gasification capacity of 750 MMcfd.

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.
