Track and Trace

Standard with all consignments, GCL’s Track-and-Trace facility allows you to monitor your shipments, wherever they are in the world, 24 hours a day.

Instantly know where your consignment is with a few clicks. Quick, easy and hassle-free.

Insurance

As you should expect, every care and precaution is taken when handling your cargo. However, to give you peace of mind, cargo insurance can mitigate any concerns you have.

Through our partnership with 'The Insurance Broker', our friendly team can provide advice on specialist cargo insurance; which will cover your shipment up to its full value against accidental damage, fire & explosion, theft, piracy, heavy water sinking and grounding and stranding. We've got you and your consignment covered.
