GAC Bunker Fuels opens newest and sixth bunker office in Colombo
GAC Bunker Fuels (GACBF) has opened its newest and sixth bunker office in Colombo, Sri Lanka, to meet growing demands of the GAC Group’s Principals’ vessels and adding strength to its existing global network.
The new office in Sri Lanka is strategically located to provide the increasing number of vessels sailing from Middle East to the Far East with a reliable supply of bunker fuels.
Lars P. Heisselberg, GAC Group Vice President, Shipping Services, said the opening of the Sri Lanka bunker office is a natural expansion move for the Group, as GAC is not only amongst the country's foremost shipping agents, but is also one of its leading logistics and offshore marine support services provider. “Current economic forecasts indicate that Sri Lanka is expecting a GDP growth of around 4% this year. This means more cargo handled, which will have a positive effect on the number of vessels calling at the country’s ports,“ he added.
