Phillips 66 selects GAC Hub Agency to support marine ops

GAC Hub Agency has secured a contract with Phillips 66 to support its marine operations in the Americas, Middle East, Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent.

Under the three-year contract, GAC Hub Agency will manage Phillips 66’s port calls through its compliant and vetted agency network, handle its disbursements and provide performance reports, said a statement from the company.

GAC will handle up to 3,000 port calls annually, primarily in North America.

To support this new contract, GAC has established a new office at the Port of Lake Charles to provide ship agency, husbandry and owners’ protective agency services around-the-clock.

Lars Hardeland, managing director, GAC Hub Agency Centre, said: “Since pioneering the global hub agency concept in the early 1990s, GAC has been helping customers save time and money by simplifying the entire port call management process.”

“We look forward to leveraging our extensive agency network, decades of experience and innovative spirit to help Phillips 66 achieve greater efficiencies and improved service levels,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
