SINGAPORE: April 19, 2018. Breakbulk and project cargo ocean carrier AAL is expanding its European agency network in a bid to develop further its global MPV shipping capabilities.

AAL frontThe company has also appointed Eike Muentz as general manager Europe and Jan-Henrik Heyken Senior Chartering manager while adding Maritima Davila (Grupo Davila) in Spain, Breakbulk Project Agencies in France and De Keyser Thornton (Benelux) to its agent network. The latter two companies are part of the French logistics group NAXCO.

The executive appointments and agency additions follow recent AAL fleet expansion for its semi-liner trades plus the introduction of a new scheduled liner service between Asia and the Middle East.

“Europe is still the powerhouse and architect behind much of the project cargo movement worldwide and with the strengthening of our Hamburg team and agency network around Europe, we are sending a clear message of intent to the market,’ declared CEO Kyriacos Panayides.

Commenting on the agency appointments Muentz said: “These new partners are hugely experienced and well-respected in their respective markets and join OceanWise in Italy as integral parts of our growing European Network – boosting our commercial reach and ability to compete across the whole region.”

Founded in the Netherlands in 1995 and headquartered in Singapore since 2009, AAL says it is currently employing several 30,000+ DWT MPV ships full time with project cargo movements worldwide. “The MPV sector is small and in recovery, so as we build upon our reputation for trust and delivery, the word quickly spreads,” added Muentz.
