October 3 - Ship spares logistics specialist GAC Marine Logistics (GML) has relocated its head office from the UAE to Singapore.

By moving the company's central hub from Dubai to Singapore, GML says that it is placing itself at the heart of a growing market, which is home to a large number of ship owners and ship management companies who take advantage of GML's door-to-deck sourcing and delivery solution.

"Our customer base in places like Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan has increased significantly over the last years, and we have also seen positive growth in China," says Jan Kielmann, director global of GML. "It therefore made sound business sense to get closer to those key markets."

Kielmann works closely with GAC offices around the world and GML bases in strategic locations in the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. He is joined in the new company head office by Oshadha Warnapura, sales manager for Asia Pacific, who previously covered the Middle East and Indian subcontinent regions from Dubai.

In Dubai, the GML regional hub team serving the Middle East and Indian subcontinent is headed by Markus Johansson.
