Project Logistics

GAC has been a leader in moving project cargoes from source to destination since the early 1970s.

Some cargoes refuse to fit into neat little packages for simple transportation. They’re too big, too heavy, too awkward, or simply too specialised to fit the norm. Since the early 1970s, GAC has been a leader in moving such project cargoes from source to destination.

GAC supports major project undertakings by combining our shipping, logistics and marine divisions, providing services that include:

  • Site survey / feasibility studies (routes, weather, political climate)
  • Full / part charter parties (air charters, time/ voyage charters)
  • Multi-modal transport (rail, tug & barge, heavy lift)
  • Special equipment transport (flat racks, open tops, platforms, tween deck solutions)
  • Freight negotiation (COA negotiation, long term rate validities)
  • Administrative support (customs clearance, trade documentation)
  • In house flexible IT solutions and tracking and tracing

GAC Marine’s barges and landing craft are ideally suited for transporting project cargo in hard-to-reach areas with infrastructure limitations. GAC also provide ballastable barges to receive cargo on direct delivery basis for on-carriage to final destination.

This unique combination of shipping, logistics and marine capability within GAC reduces risk and cost, providing transparency in handling and peace of mind throughout the project move.

GAC’s global reach provides security through one company control, ensuring strict HSSE, Quality and Compliance implementation throughout the project life. Commitment, flexibility and experience are central to the GAC approach on every project, whether it be a single shipment or the execution of a global EPC contract.
