At event sites and team locations, extend your capabilities with GAC Pindar On Ground Services; from storage requirements and equipment rental, lash-and-load, receiving and grounding of your freight, our trained staff are on hand to complete your logistics journey.

On-the-Ground Team

Members of the GAC Pindar on-the-ground team have earned a reputation as logistics ‘genies’ in the event world; meeting tight schedules, delivering event infrastructures to site, sometimes seemingly unseen at night, our ‘container fairies’ have been tried and tested by the most complex multi-staged global events.

Select your requirements to complement your own team strengths, from site surveys and marking out, grounding, levelling and positioning of containers straight from truck; the lash and loading of goods, including Dangerous Goods (DG) labelling and pre-transport checks, through to providing customer approved condition reports on loading and discharge.

Experts at handling high value items like clay model and prototype cars, our on-the-ground team are trusted repeatedly by top manufacturers and industry leaders alike.

Container Services

With GAC’s own container modifications company, GAC Pindar can provide solutions to meet your exact requirements, along with container rental options for short term needs. Where necessary, we will provide certification (CSC plating) advice and source authorised personnel wherever your container is located, maintaining its licence period while it is in transit.

Equipment Rental

GAC Pindar works with many Material Handling Equipment (MHE) providers globally, and sources equipment from those which are renowned for reliability of service, choice and availability of machinery and a solid track record of emergency response. Lifting and positioning equipment as well as mobile elevated work platforms can be delivered to your location for bespoke time periods.

Storage & Warehousing

Utilising the 300+ global GAC office locations, we provide both temporary and long term storage and warehousing solutions specific to your requirements; from short term situations before an event, or options for the strategic location of crucial spare parts, to whole infrastructures needing long term storage, we will provide answers that fit your needs and budget.

Neil Cox – Technical Director, The Ocean Race

“It was once again a genuine pleasure and reassurance to have GAC Pindar working alongside us as our logistics partner for this latest edition of The Ocean Race.

Never before has the race been more logistically challenging, requiring a high level of attention to detail in all the pre-race planning and needing to tap into the depth of experience and knowledge that the GAC Pindar team brings to the table. This helped us with all the dynamic situations that only a race like ours can generate for both ourselves and the teams.

I know I speak on behalf of all the teams and the entire race organisation when I say we could not have done this without ‘the next level’ support we got from the entire GAC team that came with us on this latest great adventure.”
