AAL Shipping (AAL) has appointed local Busan-based multipurpose and project heavy lift specialist, Wallem Korea, as its exclusive commercial and port agency representative in South Korea with immediate effect. The Agency is part of the Wallem Group, which was founded in 1903 and has an extremely well-established office network across Asia, offering world-class front-line shipping agency support to shipowners. Wallem Korea takes over AAL’s South Korean representation from the carrier’s own office that was based in Seoul.
Christophe Grammare, AAL’s Commercial Director explained, ‘South Korea has always been integral to our operations and AAL has had a consistent representation in the market for over 10 years, serving the local multipurpose cargo shipping community with a wide range of flexible ocean transportation services. These include scheduled liner operations, regular trade lane sailings and tramp services that connect the region with key trading partners in Asia, Oceania, Middle East, Europe and the Americas.’
He added, ‘Wallem Korea has a strong reputation and experience within the South Korean market and will shortly be expanding its local physical network, so our ambitions to comprehensively grow this market are very much aligned. We are looking forward to working together to enhance our commercial presence and penetrate the local market further with our range of highly competitive multipurpose and project heavy lift cargo solutions.’
