About AAL Shipping

Founded in the Netherlands in 1995 and since 2009 headquartered in Singapore, AAL is an award-winning global multipurpose shipping operator that has served the project heavy lift, breakbulk and dry bulk sectors for 25 years.

We offer our customers a unique ‘total’ multipurpose shipping solution, comprising THREE distinct service models: Chartering Solutions deliver tailor-made and competitive chartering options for any cargo type and to any compass point on a spot, or long-term engagement basis. Liner Services provide scheduled and regular sailings that connect the main ports of Asia Pacific and Oceania and Europe across to Asia. Our growing portfolio of Fixed Trade Route Services combine fixed-routes with highly flexible port calls on trades between Asia, Middle East, the Americas and Europe.

About Alireza

The House of Alireza, started in 1845 is the oldest family business in Saudi Arabia. Its founder, Zainal Alireza, began trading from Jeddah in 1845 with the importation of foodstuffs, textiles and other merchandise from around the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. These activities were later complemented by the acquisition of agencies of the shipping lines that carried these commodities. Business prospered, and the Company continued its development into the twentieth century.

In 1929, the business was retitled Haji Abdullah Alireza and Company. The emergence of a strong, united Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the resultant opening of its doors to Western trade in the 1930s, found the House of Alireza ready for its own participation. From that time onward, the Company’s growth parallels the modern history of Saudi Arabia in its multi-faceted progression. The Company’s involvement in the shipping industry dates back over a century. The Company has owned, managed and operated passenger ships. Through the years, it has held agencies for a number of international shipping lines.
