Boskalis offer too low say some Smit shareholders

February 2 - GAC India has signed an agency agreement with Sarjak Container Lines Pvt Ltd., Mumbai, covering its operations in Delhi and northern India.

Sarjak specialises in the transportation of over dimensioned cargo (ODC) in containers or in break bulk utilising its fleet of hard top, open top, flat rack, super rack and GP containers.

Sarjak's more than 3,000 units of specialist equipment enable the company to handle shipments that cannot fit into normal containers or flat rack units. The main cargoes handled from the region include transformers, boilers, chiller units, pressure vessels, sugar manufacturing plants, oil well equipment, and various engineering goods.

Under the new agreement, GAC India will take care of all Sarjak's operational and marketing requirements in Delhi and North India area. Currently, 35 containers are moved every month, but that figure is set to increase to 100 containers monthly, from April onwards.

Sunil Kapoor, GAC's North of India Manager, says the company's winning combination of local know-how and its strong presence in the north of the country, plus the Group's global reach and resources, make it the ideal partner to ensure that Sarjak's clients receive fast, professional service, both in terms of receiving rates and proposals, and efficient handling of the containers and flat racks.

Sarjak's Senior President, captain Rumi Engineer adds: "Meticulous planning and precision handling are key factors in the successful handling of the most unique and challenging of project cargoes. GAC India has a long track record in managing odd and off-size shipments, so we are assured that the cargoes are in good hands."
