GAC Ventures Further into Brazil for Liquid Cargo Sector


GAC Brazil has extended its reach in Brazil southwards by opening a branch in Paranagua, a city in the state of Paraná, its first venture into the south of the country.

The international ship agency has made the move two months after opening its northernmost office in the Brazillian city of São Luis.

With its headquarters in São Paulo, GAC decided to set up its tenth office in the country after growing demand for professional shipping services from the liquid cargo sector.

GAC’s covers services for several ship owners in many different sectors all over Brazil, including dry bulk, general cargo, tankers, offshore oil and gas, LNG and LPG.

Giovanni Targa, GAC’s Operations Supervisor in Paranagua, said: “In the past few years, the port has received a considerable amount of investment in infrastructure to accommodate the steady demand for liquid cargo such as chemicals, petroleum derivatives, ethanol and biofuels, which has doubled in volume year on year.”

Lars Heisselberg, Group Vice President – Americas, said: “By quickly growing our geographic footprint in Brazil, GAC has proven itself able to adapt to meet the needs of our customers.

“Our strategic growth to the north in São Luis and now, the south in Paranagua, allows GAC to engage with customers on a broader scale, further demonstrating our commitment in South America and this industry.”
