AAL reinforces its global presence

On the eve of its 25-year anniversary, the specialist breakbulk and project heavy lift carrier AAL has announced the expansion of its multipurpose fleet with the addition of four Warnow-Class (W-class) 33,271 dwt ‘mega size’ vessels. This new fleet expansion represents 133,000 dwt / 156,000 cbm of additional capacity and will boost the operating tonnage to 740,000 dwt. The vessels will join AAL’s fleet from October and will provide extra capacity on trades as Asia-Australia, Asia-Middle East-Europe, and Asia-North America.

AAL’s Managing Director Kyriacos Panayides explained, ‘We’ve invested heavily in developing a global infrastructure, differentiated modern fleet profile and team of professionals worldwide – experts in chartering, commercial support, operations and engineering – that can put us in pole position over other carriers to deliver on the demands of today’s global project industry.”
