GAC signs up to deliver on shipping’s version of Amazon

Shipping’s answer to Amazon has found a logistics partner to deliver goods to vessels. Singapore-based maritime e-commerce platform Moscord has signed with GAC Marine Logistics to provide global last mile delivery services for its digital marketplace.

Moscord gathers the world’s products and suppliers in one online location with around 200,000 products currently for sale. The global platform went live in March last year.

Orders placed via the Moscord platform will now be received by GAC Singapore – the designated control and coordination hub – who then arrange for the spare parts or supplies to be cleared at the destination port before delivery to their final destination.

“Moscord is committed to building the leanest, most efficient and reliable purchase and fulfilment cycle, from initial customer engagement through to final delivery at any port location worldwide,” commented Freddy Ingemann, the founder and CEO of Moscord. “We have created a platform that we believe can revolutionise the ship supply segment, delivering huge benefits to both buyers and sellers, and it’s important we engage with the right partners to realise its full potential. I can’t think of a better name than GML to help us achieve our ambitious goals.”
