Japanese container shipping company Ocean Network Express (ONE) has awarded GAC the agency contract to handle all its vessel calls in Australia covering the ports of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle.

Under the agreement, GAC Australia will provide agency and husbandry services for approximately 210 calls annually.

ONE is a joint venture formed by the integration of three major shipping lines in Japan – Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Mitsui OSK Lines and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha – and is now the world’s sixth-largest container carrier.

The joint venture launched its container shipping business on April 1, 2018.

“GAC focuses on fruitful collaboration with partners through long-term strategic partnerships. Having worked as a partner with the shipping lines for a long time prior to their integration, we know the quality of the services they demand and have the resources and capabilities to deliver them,” Scott Henderson, GAC Australia Managing Director, commented.

GAC has an operations office at all Australian ports and has been providing a range of ship agency and support services for port calls since 2007.
