AAL & PD launch joint Semi-Liner Service: Asia – Middle East – Europe

Fixed route sailings and flexible port calls offered between Asia & Europe, as AAL expands its tramp division in cooperation with Peter Döhle

AAL & PD have followed up their cooperation on a range of global multipurpose tramp solutions with the launch a new joint semi-liner service – ‘Asia – Middle East – Europe’.  The route will connect mature and developing markets with regular fixed route sailings, flexible port calls and multiple classes of modern heavy lift MPP vessels and represents a highly competitive solution for the transport of project, breakbulk, container and dry-bulk cargo – big and small.

This launch marks further expansion of AAL’s Tramp & Projects Division and a step forward in its cooperation with Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG (Peter Döhle). The joint semi-liner service will offer best-in-class multipurpose heavy lift tonnage and a full-service of chartering, engineering and operations.

AAL & PDMarc Willim, General Manager of AAL’s Tramp & Projects Division explained, “AAL has operated tramp and liner services side-by-side for many years, so we understand the demands of managing regular scheduled services, alongside bespoke chartering solutions.  We operate liner services between Asia – NoPac and Asia – Australia and two semi–liner trades between Asia – USG / USEC and Intra-Asia. These services will soon feature regularly published schedules and departure lists, for easy customer reference.”

John Jensen, General Manager of Chartering at Peter Döhle, added, “We’ve addressed customer demands for a more regular and defined schedule, in combination with present tramp flexibility for off route contracts and requirements.  With our joint geographical set up (PD Europe-Africa / AAL Asia, Middle East & North America), we’re more than ready to master all global challenges. Our well-known customer service quality will definitely be improved with this new step in our joint cooperation.”

Namir Khanbabi, Managing Director of AAL’s Tramp & Projects Division added, “Our relationship with Peter Döhle was a determining factor in the launch of this important new trade route having already set in place a joint global tramp cooperation. Our combined resources, experience and service ethics give us and our customers a real competitive advantage at a time when the market demands it most.”
