GAC Malaysia has bolstered the project logistics solutions available in East Malaysia through a partnership with Syarikat Uminaca, a manpower and stevedoring services provider. The JV aims to support development projects in the Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah. 

The partnership will have a strong focus on the country’s growing energy sector. This will include support for various infrastructure projects across Sarawak, such as the Lang Lebah offshore gas field, various Petros projects, and the Sarawak Metro Autonomous Rail Transit (ART) project, as well as developing oil and gas facilities at the Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) in Sabah.

GAC and Uminaca will also provide ship management, integrated logistics, ship agency, marine and technical services to clients in the region.

“GAC strategically tie-up with vibrant and dynamic partners to bolster our services in key markets around the world,” says Herman Jorgensen, GAC Malaysia’s Managing Director. “Our collaboration with Uminaca will deliver exceptional value to our clients in East Malaysia.”

Awang Azrulyani, Director of Uminaca added, “This collaboration with GAC Malaysia marks a pivotal milestone for Uminaca, propelling our ambition to become a logistics leader beyond East Malaysia. With our decade-long expertise in various sectors, including project logistics and oil & gas, combined with GAC’s global presence, we’re poised to expand into new markets and offer comprehensive marine and logistics solutions worldwide. The partnership both enhances our local competitiveness and unlocks doors to larger-scale projects, fostering growth and development for our company.”

This JV is the latest step in GAC’s growing presence in Malaysia and the wider region. In August last year, the company opened its 14th official office in Malaysia, in Kota Kinabalu, to provide shipping and logistics services to the marine and energy sectors. GAC also plans to open new offices in Kuantan and Yan as the country continues to develop its energy sector and becomes a larger player in global trade.
