Meet Our Expanding North America Team


We proudly announce the appointment of Michael Morland to the role of General Manager Americas. Michael’s arrival follows our recent appointment of Marc Schutzbier as Commercial Manager Canada and continues to strengthen AAL’s North American operations and highly competitive MPV services for local customers – comprising tailormade tramp and scheduled semi-liner sailings that offer regular and seamless ‘around-the-world’ connectivity.

Michael brings over 17 years international shipping, offshore and maritime sector expertise with him – much of it in the heavy lift project cargo and breakbulk markets of North America, where he has an outstanding reputation. He commented, ‘I am very excited about spearheading AAL’s US presence and truly competitive services into and out of the Americas via both Pacific and Atlantic trade routes. AAL has been serving the US market for many years and we intend to reinforce our relationship with local shippers looking for trusted MPV options and will draw upon a world-class fleet, finest in-house technical expertise and an unrivalled global reputation for cargo care and customer service to do so.’

Meet Michael, Marc and the rest of our North America team at Breakbulk Americas 2018 (Stand 827, 3-4 October, in Houston). There, AAL will be serving complimentary food and beverages, including draught beer, from a vintage 1950s US Airstream trailer. It’s going to be fun, so join us!
