October 2 - Shipping, logistics and marine services provider, GAC Group, has added a new office in Antwerp to its network of over 300 offices.

The GAC Belgium team consists of office manager, Alain Meyer and account manager, Thor Verstraete, both of whom are joined by project freight forwarder Peter van Dael, who brings extensive knowledge of the Antwerp maritime industry and many years of project cargo and chartering expertise to his new role.
