AAL Galveston joins the AAL fleet
The AAL Galveston has joined AAL’s fleet of breakbulk carriers. The vessel was already deployed on the company’s liner and tramp services but still carried its old name Pacific Alert. The vessel will soon be joined by two sister vessels which AAL acquired last month.
The AAL Galveston 35,705 cbm multipurpose vessel with a maximum lift capacity of 240 tonnes. “It is ideal for trading all manner of project and heavy-lift cargoes, breakbulk, steel and dry bulk commodities”, AAL says.
Together with its sister vessel AAL Genoa, the AAL Galveston is operating worldwide both in the company’s liner services as well as the tramp chartering solutions.
The G-Class vessels will soon be joined by two other sister vessels, the Pacific Action and AAL which AAL acquired last month. Both of these vessels have served in the AAL fleet before. Many breakbulk carriers are looking to expand their fleets at the moment as demand is high, partly because of capacity constraints in the container sector.
“Since February 2020, we have built a scheduled a monthly liner service between Europe, Middle East and Asia, a monthly tramp service between Asia and the Americas and frequent sailings from Asia to Europe – all this in addition to our Asia-Australia liner services and global tramp chartering operations. It has been an extremely busy and sustained period of growth for AAL and these new ladies will help to drive that momentum forward”, AAL’s managing director Kyriacos Panayides commented on the latest purchase last month.
