AAL to serve mining and energy projects in Canada through Port of Prince Rupert

AAL, a global breakbulk, project cargo and heavy lift shipping operator, announced plans to strengthen its foothold in the oil rich mining region of Northern Alberta, Canada, by expanding its Pacific Service liner route to include the Port of Prince Rupert.

The Port of Prince Rupert operates as a gateway for project cargo imports to Alberta and the wider Pacific North West. AAL’s expanded Pacific Service will now be making regular calls at the port to serve major mining and energy projects in the region.

AAL’s Pacific Service offers a monthly frequency and a fleet of three A-Class 31,000-dwt multipurpose, heavy lift vessels – each with a combined lifting capacity of 700-mt.

Felix Schoeller, General Manager of AAL’s Pacific Service said, “We have gained extensive experience in serving the oil and gas, mining and energy sectors. They rely upon us to enhance their supply chains, with added-value and reliability. By expanding our Pacific Service and port network across the Pacific North West, we multiply our customers’ options and choice – ultimately impacting on the efficiency, delivery and overall competitiveness of their projects.”
