GAC sets up first office in Vietnam

GAC Group has partnered with SME Logistics Holding to open its first ever office in Vietnam as it expands in Southeast Asia.

The office, located in Ho Chi Minh City, supports customers at ports along the Saigon River with an integrated portfolio of shipping, logistics and marine services to a wide range of sectors, including dry and liquid bulk, liners, FMCGs and offshore energy.

“We have been active in Vietnam for many years through our work with local partners and agents, but the time is now right to set up our own operational office in Vietnam. The combination of GAC’s global network with the strong local presence and know-how of SME Logistics will mark a new chapter for us to better serve our customers and deliver their strategy,” says Daniel Nordberg, GAC’s Group Vice President, Asia Pacific & Indian Subcontinent.

The launch of the new facility comes in response to growing customer demand for shipping and logistics services in the region, as well as providing an opportunity to support exploration, production, and maintenance operations for Vietnam’s burgeoning offshore wind farm projects.

“Our new office in Ho Chi Minh is a reflection of GAC Group’s commitment to serving and supporting our customers in Southeast Asia, as well as the wider Asia-Pacific region, which continues to show significant growth in a number of sectors, including the offshore energy industry,” added Norberg.

GAC operates more than 300 branches in more than 50 countries for the wider GAC Group, which employs about 7,500 staff worldwide.
