DUBAI -- GAC Group has established a base on the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole. The company has also teamed with Pole Position Spitsbergen to form GAC-Pole Position.

GAC-Pole Position offers GAC’s usual range of shipping, port agency, and logistics solutions, as well as highly specialised services including polar bear protection for vessels berthed outside the island’s settlements. The new venture has an ice-drifting platform for transfers, provisions, and terminal services. It also handles services on all flights in and out of the archipelago.
