GAC wins ONE deal to handle all Australia calls

GAC has won the agency contract to handle all Australia vessel calls from Ocean Network Express (ONE). The contract covers the ports of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle and under the agreement, GAC Australia will provide agency and husbandry services for approximately 210 calls annually, the company said in a press release.

ONE is a joint venture formed by the integration of three major shipping lines in Japan – Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) – and is now the world’s sixth-largest container carrier. Its global headquarters is in Singapore, and it has a network of 90 countries worldwide.

The appointment by ONE has been welcomed by GAC Australia md Scott Henderson.

“GAC focuses on fruitful collaboration with partners through long-term strategic partnerships. Having worked as a partner with the shipping lines for a long time prior to their integration, we know the quality of the services they demand and have the resources and capabilities to deliver them,” he said.

GAC has an operations office at all Australian ports and has been providing a range of ship agency and support services for port calls since 2007. It has recently secured a license to act as a corporate customs broker, handling the clearance and delivery of ship spares and third party operations at all ports and terminals in Australia.
