Stories of GSW

History

In September 2012 two companies from different cultures as well as industries envisioned that combining their competencies and resources would help reach their common goal of building a strong business in the shipping industry. This included building a team with both local and global market expertise, investing in vessels and providing logistic seaborne solutions.

A joint venture between Stena Weco (SW) and Golden Agri-Resources (GAR) was created and resulted in what today is Golden Stena Weco (GSW). We believed that it was a need for an increase in the intermediate chemical tanker segment in Asia and today we can clearly see that our belief was a fact. We have become a powerful organization assisting the world’s second largest palm oil producer GAR and SW, one of the biggest MR operators. Both organizations are determined to create a quality logistic centre that acts both as a charterer and an owner, in a manner that is summarized in our motto: “First Class Palm Oil Partners”.

Three Signatures

With these three signatures GSW was established. At that time with only five people on board and yet no vessels; but the goal was clear and resources committed.

Steady Progress

Today we have built a full-fledged shipping team with a fleet of intermediate vessels operating world-wide.

Our strategy and decisive vision continues to lead us to even greater accomplishments in the future.
