As one of the world’s largest and most trusted operators, multipurpose carrier AAL has served the global breakbulk and heavy lift project cargo industry for a quarter of a century, operating across the energy, oil & gas, mining, forestry, leisure, agriculture and construction industries.
AAL provides customers with three distinct service models, including bespoke tramp and projects solutions to any location; scheduled liner services between Asia and Oceania; and semi-liner services combining fixed-routes with highly flexible port calls.
AAL's growing fleet of owned and chartered heavy lift multipurpose vessels is the sector’s youngest and spearheads the ‘mega-mpv’ (30,000+ dwt) segment, providing shippers with best-in-class economies of scale and cargo intake volumes.
With a multilingual office network spanning Asia, Oceania, Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas, as well as the sector’s finest commercial, engineering and operations professionals, AAL is able to locally address a global customer base 24/7.
"AAL has been a close partner of HLPFI for many years and their understanding and appreciation of our sector has always been unwavering. We operate in a high pressure service environment, where no two companies, or the quality of their services, are the same and it is people who make the difference," said AAL's managing director Kyriacos Panayides.
"We hope that these awards acknowledge the many unsung heroes working within our sector whose expertise, hard work and dogged determination keeps breakbulk and heavy lift project cargo moving smoothly between every compass point."
