CORK, Ireland: September 24, 2019. The GAC Group has opened its first office in the Republic of Ireland, providing a wide range of shipping services to vessels at the country’s ports as well as in Northern Ireland.

GAC Ireland provides ship agency services at all major Irish ports to a range of customers operating in sectors from tankers and dry cargo to offshore and navy vessels.

More GAC Ireland branches are set to follow as business increases in line with the expansion plans of three of the island of Ireland’s major ports: Cork, Dublin and Belfast.

Aidan Carney, GAC Ireland Manager commented: “Adding an Irish office is strategic in GAC’s growth to offer our customers a more all-in ship agency solution throughout north west Europe. It builds on our already strong customer base and significantly enhances our extensive portfolio of service offerings.”

“The establishment of GAC Ireland further strengthens our presence in the country, adding to our partnership with the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) in Cork [via] GAC Training & Services Solutions (GTSS),” added Ivo Verheyen, GAC’s Group vice president for Europe. “Now, as well as GTSS’s innovative and cost-saving training services, we can offer our agency expertise throughout the island of Ireland.”
