GAC Shipping has expanded its network of Global Network Agencies (GNAs) to Bangladesh with the signing of an agency alliance deal with Uni-Global Business Ltd. Under the agreement, GAC-Uni-Global will provide ship agency services at all Bangladeshi ports. Uni-Global Business is headquartered in the capital, Dhaka, with branch offices at the key ports of Chittagong and Mongla.
Tom Björklund, GAC's general manager of global hub services, says Uni-Global has been working with the Group since its establishment in 1990, when the two companies cooperated to help arrange the scrapping of a vessel for a GAC client.
"Since then, Uni-Global has consistently displayed professionalism, expertise and efficiency - precisely the qualities we look for in a GNA," he adds. "GAC Uni-Global is well equipped to handle all types of vessels and we foresee a drastic expansion of business in Bangladesh, based on good growth in general cargo and the growing number of Ro-Ro vessels and tankers calling at the country's ports."
