Essberger Tankers inks deal with GAC in Scandinavia
The chemical tanker operator Essberger Tankers has signed a ship agency deal with GAC throughout Scandinavia. According to the pact, GAC will handle an estimated 600 - 800 port calls a year for Essberger's fleet of vessels carrying a wide range of chemicals.
The deal comes after more than 20 years of managing Essberger’s port calls in Finland. The shipping and logistics service provider landed the contract, inter alia, because of its ability to deliver support from its expanding network of offices in Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
Peter Österman, GAC’s commercial manager in Scandinavia, says: “This contract with Essberger is testament to the breadth of support GAC can provide in the area, and is a clear sign that our strategy of staff investment, continuous improvement and a wide network of offices is working. (mw)
