New Hands at the Helm for GAC Sweden
The GAC Group has appointed industry veteran and current Chair of the Swedish Shipbrokers Association, Johan Ehn, as Managing Director of its operation in Sweden.
Ehn started his career in shipping in 1989 when he joined Swedish Maritime AB, and subsequently gained logistics expertise as a partner in a freight forwarding business, before establishing his own company. He also served as Managing Director of Georg Hansen AB, and Head of Commercial with APL line in Gothenburg. In addition to his active role in the Swedish Shipbrokers Association, he is also a longstanding board member of Gothenburg Shipbrokers.
GAC Sweden specializes in project logistics, ship agency and freight forwarding services and was established in 2012 following the acquisition of Transweco Agencies and JoShip AB. The addition of Ivar Lundh and Company’s agency services last year saw the expansion of GAC Sweden’s footprint with a new office in Stockholm. The company’s head office is in Gothenburg, with branch offices in Lysekil, Karlshamn, Karlskrona and Nynäshamn, covering all Swedish ports.
