Maersk Line appoints GAC for husbandry services
JULY 9, 2015: Maersk Line has appointed GAC to provide husbandry services for its vessels calling at Hong Kong. Maersk Line is part of the Maersk Group, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Under the two-year contract, which commenced on 1 July 2015, GAC will handle more than 1,000 calls by Maersk Line and MCC vessels per year at all ports and terminals in Hong Kong.
“We chose GAC to handle our husbandry requirements in Hong Kong based on its established track record in ship agency, marine and crew transportation in South China, as well as our shared corporate ethos of delivering on promises of performance,” says Danny Chen, director procurement, Far East Asia Liner Operations Cluster of Maersk Line.
Thomas Okbo, GAC Hong Kong’s managing director adds, “When Maersk Line wanted to outsource its husbandry operation in Hong Kong, we put together a dedicated team to handle the account, in close cooperation with four professionals from their husbandry team. With more than 40 years of agency experience in Hong Kong, we have what it takes to meet their needs.”
