Doha, Qatar – GAC Qatar’s customs clearance expertise has earned it two titles in an awards ceremony organised by the General Authority of Customs, held in conjunction with International Customs Day.

The accolades for the awards were presented at a ceremony attended by His Excellency Jassim bin Saif al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport and Communications, His Excellency Ahmed bin Abdullah Al Jamal, Chairman of the General Authority of Customs, and many officials from different ministries and the General Authority of Customs.

GAC was one of three logistics service providers to be honoured as Best Customs Clearance Brokerage Company. GAC Qatar’s Customs Broker, Sabri Eltahir Elsiddeg Mohamed, also received the Distinguished Customs Clearance Agent Award in appreciation of his dedication and outstanding work.
