Shipping and logistics provider to service Black Watch and Balmoral in Liverpool and Newcastle

Grangemouth, UK, 6 March 2018 – Fred Olsen Cruise Lines has appointed GAC UK as its agent in Newcastle and Liverpool.

Under the deal, GAC will manage 18 calls during 2018 for the 804-guest cruise ship Black Watch at its home port of Liverpool, and a further 16 for the 1,350-guest Balmoral, at its home port of Newcastle.

Clare Ward, Director of Product and Customer Service at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Turnaround calls are always busy days for everybody involved in the operation, with crew changes, immigration and Customs formalities, stevedoring activity, receipt of supplies and much more all going on at once. Having the support from our Port Agent and knowing they have local contacts in the area to assist when needed gives us great confidence. Knowing that the day will run as smoothly as possible from start to finish. That’s why Fred Olsen has chosen to partner with GAC.”
