With a multilingual office network across Asia, Oceania, Middle East, Europe, Africa and the Americas - as well as award-winning chartering, commercial, engineering and operations teams - AAL addresses the needs of a global customer base 24/7 and at a local level.
"AAL has been a close partner of HLPFI for many years now and the understanding and appreciation of our sector is unwavering. We operate in a high-pressure service environment, where no two companies, or indeed the quality of their services, are the same and it’s truly people who make the difference," said AAL's Managing Director Kyriacos Panayides.
"Such awards recognise the hard work of many, whose expertise and determination keeps breakbulk, dry bulk and project heavy lift cargo moving around the world despite extreme challenges that we have all experienced in the recent past."
