CargoGulf and GAC open new Thailand office

CargoGulf and GAC open new Thailand office

Singapore: CargoGulf and its long-standing agent GAC have opened a new office in Bangkok, Thailand under a value partner scheme that is expected to develop new business and trade lanes in the region and manage import/export consolidation services locally and globally. The office is headed by CargoGulf Manager, Vanchai Polchai, who previously worked for CargoGulf in Thailand as Sales Executive.

"The move to expand into Thailand is in line with the company's strategy to strengthen our presence in Asia and to be known as a 'truly global' NVOCC carrier," said CargoGulf Global md Hans-Henrik Nielsen. "As part of a strong neutral agency network, we will also tap on our global purchasing power for more competitive rates that will benefit our customers. Promising growth has already been seen with many Thai forwarders contacting us to book cargo, a direct result from our weekly CargoGulf e-bulletin."

"This new agreement demonstrates a clear commitment to the Thai market from both CargoGulf and GAC," said GAC Thailand md Johan Vermeiren adds: We will look to taking advantage of CargoGulf's fast transit times, guaranteed space, long-term rate validities and agreements with leading shipping liners to provide freight forwards competitively transport solutions."  [02/04/09]
