AAL Shipping launches new liner service
AAL Shipping is launching a new, monthly liner service which will connect main ports in Europe, the Middle East, India and Asia to serve the multipurpose and heavy-lift markets.
The company will deploy its second-generation 31,000 dwt ‘mega-size’ A-Class vessels on the route which can lift loads of up to 700 tonnes.
The new liner service will follow a fixed route with port call flexibility. Base ports will include Antwerp, Porto Marghera, Jebel Ali, Dammam, Mumbai, Singapore, Shanghai, Tianjin and Masan. The company is also strengthening its team with the appointment of liner service expert, Captain Kay Goldenstein, who will oversee the new operation from AAL’s European Hub office in Hamburg.
Christophe Grammare, AAL’s Commercial Director, commented: “The Europe – Middle East / India – Asia Monthly Liner Service is a natural addition to our existing portfolio of tailormade tramp chartering solutions and other established scheduled liner services between Asia and Oceania.”
