October 25 - GAC, the global provider of shipping, logistics and marine services, has launched a free mobile phone application to give users instant access to a directory of GAC contact details, wherever they are.

The GAC Mobile Directory Application provides an extensive database of contacts across GAC's global network that can be searched by service category, location or name. Users can also customise their settings and specify their 'favourites' for quick and easy access. The directory can even be accessed offline, ensuring that essential contact details are always available.

Bill Hill, GAC's executive group vice president, said: "With over 300 offices worldwide, GAC's global reach is one of our key strengths and we are dedicated to finding new ways to bring convenience and accessibility to our stakeholders. In a time-critical industry, we know how important it is to ensure that they can reach exactly who they need at GAC when on the move.

The GAC Mobile Directory Application is available on iPhone and Blackberry devices and can be downloaded for free at www.gac.com/mobiledirectory/application, with users alerted whenever a new version is available.

The hard copy of GAC's global address directory, which has been in circulation for over three decades, is still available for customers that prefer this handy guide.
