GAC and Hoyer Group ink bulk liquid logistics deal
Dubai-based logistics group GAC secures bulk liquid transport contract with the global Hoyer Group
The Hoyer Group has appointed Dubai-based logistics group GAC as its official agency partner in 17 countries across the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent and Africa.
The GAC network will represent Hoyer’s deep sea business unit, involving the transport of ISO tank containers – large, stainless steel pressure vessels approved to ISO standards and held within 20-foot frames for the bulk transport of liquids.
ISO tanks are safe, reliable and cost-effective and can be equipped with insulation, heating or refrigeration for products that require temperature control, top and/or bottom discharge, protective linings and other modifications, and are also suitable for hazardous chemicals.
GAC will ensure the seamless movement of thousands of these ISO tanks across its supply chain, and for the purposes of the agreement extend its operations network to include locations where it did not previously have an official presence.
“The synergies between our companies are strong,” said GAC Group President Bengt Ekstrand. “We share similar values, we strive for similar standards in our operations and our ethical practices and we both aim to build long-term relationships.”
Ortwin Nast, CEO of the Hoyer Group, added: “In GAC we have found a professional partner in a region that is important to us, and we look forward to a successful collaboration.”
GAC has companies and partners in Kuwait, Iraq, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, India, Angola, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania and Togo.
These entities focus primarily on the transportation of liquid cargoes by road, rail and sea and will now provide their range of integrated shipping and logistics services to Hoyer’s overseas clients.
