Established in the 1960s, GAC Turkey is the country’s number one international shipping agent. Our comprehensive range of ship agency services meets the needs of all kinds of vessels from cruise liners to FSO/FPSOs, and cargo ranging from wind turbines to wheat.

As well as handling all documentation and liaising with local authorities, our staff manage crew changes, supplies of water and provisions, onboard medical emergencies, the receipt and clearance of spares, connections with appropriately qualified technicians, bunker fuels, maritime training and more.

GAC assists tankers calling at Ceyhan Terminal, the discharge point for oil piped from Iraq, as well as terminals at Atas, Aliaga, Ambarli, Derince and Tutunciftlik. We also handle vessels delivering humanitarian aid supplies on behalf of the United Nations World Food Programme.

Excellent relations with the local authorities enable us to provide first class, trouble-free transit services to vessels passing through the Turkish Straits linking the Eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
