GAC Group has acquired Malmö-based ship agent Hasting Ship Services as part of GAC Sweden’s strategy to better support its customers in the south of the country.
The deal was completed on October 1 and will add a physical presence in the port of Malmö (also covering Helsingborg, Landskrona and Ystad), complementing GAC Sweden’s main office in Gothenburg and branches in Nynäshamn, Oxelösund, Stockholm and Västerås/Köping. As part of the acquisition, all existing personnel from Hasting will join the GAC team.
“With our acquisition of Hasting Ship Services, we extend our coverage of ports in Sweden to provide ship agency and related services to our customers wherever they go,” said Johan Ehn, managing director of GAC Sweden.
GAC Sweden specialises in project logistics, ship agency and freight forwarding services, with a particular focus on the energy sector and, increasingly in recent years, renewable energy.
