GAC has been active in the Turkish market since the 1960s, offering a full range of shipping and logistics services. As well as handling the documentation and liaison with local authorities, our staff handles crew changes, supplies of water and provisions, onboard medical emergencies and the receipt and clearance of spares. GAC Turkey also arranges appropriately qualified technicians when the need arises.
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 professional transit services to vessels passing through the Turkish Straits linking the Eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
GAC Turkey’s integrated logistics network offers a wide range of solutions to meet any freight forwarding and distribution needs throughout the country. GAC Istanbul is the hub for air as well as sea and overland shipments, with excellent distribution channels not only to/from neighbouring countries but to countries far beyond.
