AAL KEEPS THE LIGHTS ON IN NEW SOUTH WALES!

AAL and its customer Cargo Line International in Sydney, worked together this January to transport a 240 mt generator transformer, from Toshiba’s production facility in Shanghai, to Newcastle. Once installed on the New South Wales (NSW) power gird, the transformer will be able to change the voltage of electricity produced by the local power station.

The unit was carried on our 31,000 dwt A-Class vessel, the AAL Shanghai and along our popular Asia – Australia East Coast (AUEC) Liner service.

Thank-you to our brilliant Brisbane team for the story and pictures!

SHANGHAI LUOJING TERMINAL THANKS AAL

NEW AAL China Chief, Christophe Grammare, emphasizes importance of offering convenient and competitive trade routes between China and its global partners.

At its first-ever formal ceremony held on 16 December 2016 at the Shanghai Guchun Park Hotel, the Shanghai Luojing Terminal – Shanghai’s biggest and most important breakbulk cargo hub – formally named and thanked key partners for their contribution to the terminal’s trade performance in 2016. AAL, who has been regularly calling at the Port since its opening, and in 2016 carried over 400,000 freighted tons of cargo through the port, was honored with a bronze model from the Terminal’s General Manager, Ren Sheng Hua.

Christophe Grammare, Managing Director of AAL’s Liner Services Division, and from 2017 relocating from Australia to China taking the additional role of Chief Representative for China, explained: ‘Such positive recognition of our services is important, as China is the largest breakbulk market in Asia and we aim to offer our local customers the most convenient and competitive trade routes and services possible. The Terminal is conveniently located on the Yangtze Southbank close to the city and offers advantages that benefit our outbound customer shipments of steel and heavy-lift project cargo. For this reason, it has been a regular feature of our Liner Services between Asia and the USWC & Oceania for almost a decade and a highly convenient call for our tailor-made Tramp sailings too.’

He Added, ‘China’s trade performance is of course hampered by global economic uncertainty. Nevertheless, with a projected growth of between 6.3% and 6.5% for the mainland in 2017 and its biggest industries challenging and competing on the global stage to grow this further, AAL will continue to provide the resources on the ground and the tonnage in the water to meet our local customers’ demands and expectations – as we’ve done for the past 21 years.’
