New GAC Shipping Office Reinforces Gulf Coast Offshore Support

GAC has strengthened its ship agency services in the US with the opening of a new office in Galliano, Louisiana, in response to the increase of offshore oil & gas activity in the region.

The new GAC Shipping USA office near Port Fourchon, Morgan City and Amelia enables the leading provider of shipping, logistics and marine services to better serve the needs of customers with vessels calling at the ports.

Port Fourchon is the region’s main port supporting offshore oil & gas activity, whilst Morgan City is considered the birthplace of the US offshore oil exploration industry and most tonnage handled at the ports is related to the oil & gas sector. The Galliano office is therefore well placed at the heart of the action to attend GAC’s customers’ offshore construction, cargo and supply vessels calling at either port.

Office space is available for Principals, if required for hands-on support during projects, mobilizations or demobilizations of their vessels at Fourchon. The base also has a warehouse and outside storage to cater for the staging or storage of equipment or supplies, rather than trucking the material at short notice from Houston or New Orleans.

"This is an important new addition to our network of bases serving our customers," says Darren Martin, GAC Shipping USA General Manager. "We are working closely with GAC Logistics in Houston to offer all our oil & gas customers our full range of services to support their offshore activities in the Gulf."

In addition to the new base in Galliano, GAC Shipping USA’s extensive network of offices includes port agents at Houston, New Orleans, Mobile, Port Arthur, Pascagoula, Corpus Christi, Freeport TX and Tampa.
