GAC Russia Expands Far East Presence

first_imgzoom GAC Russia is expanding eastwards with the opening of new branches at Nakhodka and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk to meet demand for shipping services as opportunities open up in Far East.With this move, GAC Russia’s presence stretches throughout the interconnected Arctic region and Far East, at Murmansk, Kandalaksha, Sabetta, and now Nakhodka and the capital of the Sakhalin region, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.“GAC has been active in Russia since 2001 and has built a strong network of offices in the European part of the country. The time is now right for us to expand eastwards to provide the GAC brand of professional ship agency and husbandry services to our customers operating in the Far East, which has a coastline of over 5,000 miles and covers 22 maritime ports,” Arkady Podkopaev, GAC Russia’s General Manager, said.As the Russian Federation focuses on developing political and economic relations with the Asia-Pacific region, the country’s Far East has moved to the top of the agenda.The region includes a Free Port Zone established in 2015 covering Vladivostok, Nakhodka, Korsakov and several other ports.Close to the borders with China, Japan, and Korea, the area is a hub for trade with imports coming in from Asia, which are transferred to other vessels or the Trans-Siberian Railway for distribution to the rest of the nation.last_img
