GAC extends global agency network to the Bahamas.

March 1 - Effective today, GAC's global shipping network has been further strengthened with the signing of an alliance agreement with Bahamian agency Elnet Maritime Co Ltd to form GAC-Elnet.

Elnet Maritime was founded by shipping veteran Elbert 'Ellie' Hepburn in 2008 after serving a variety of top managerial positions at agencies in Grand Bahamas, to provide agency services to Principals with vessels calling at ports throughout The Bahamas.

"Throughout its history, GAC's growth has been opportunistic and customer-driven to meet the needs of our clients - and this latest move into The Bahamas is another example of that," says Lars Heisselberg, GAC's Group vice president for the Americas.

Hepburn says: "Our local know-how and GAC's global standing make GAC-Elnet a winning combination. Through this alliance we will be able to pursue international clients and GAC's customers will benefit from our frontline expertise here in The Bahamas."
