GMS handled themselves with great deal of integrity and professionalism in our most recent sale, including the extension of a cancelling date in a falling market. 

There were no attempts made to renegotiate the price even though they were facing a substantial loss. It is impressive to see Buyers who still value their credibility more than the negative financial implications.

Your support throughout was excellent and we thank you again for an excellent performance from the whole team at GMS.

Sellers is delighted by the smoothness of the negotiation and delivery. It's been a wonderful experience dealing with GMS and particularly with you so far. Hopefully we could work together again in the future.

In September 2016, Atlantic Container Line AB (ACL), a Grimaldi Group company, sold the Atlantic Concert, one of our five G3 multipurpose container/RORO vessels, for recycling to nominees of Global Marketing Systems, Inc. (GMS).. GMS have conducted themselves with professionalism and integrity in this transaction and have cooperated with us every step of the way.

ACL's biggest concern was for our ship to be recycled at an ISO certified green recycling yard, and we were able to do that with GMS.

ACL has sister ships of the Atlantic Concert which will be recycled in 2017. We will not hesitate for a moment to do business with GMS again.

It has been a pleasure to work with a company like GMS, who does business with integrity and professionalism.

We have no hesitation in recommending GMS as a partner to work with for ship recycling.

We, EVER GLORY MARITIME COMPANY LTD. have countersigned MOA of our managed vessel named “MINBEI” with GMS on 6 May, 2016 and mutually agreed to deliver the aforementioned vessel to Alang port of Bangladesh on June 2016.

Although scrap price has fallen on June, GMS still strictly fulfilled the MOA. The vessel “MINBEI” has very smooth delivery finally.

Thanks again for your good performance on MOA implementation!
