At a glittering ceremony in London, AAL collected the Global Freight Awards’ ‘BREAKBULK OPERATOR OF THE YEAR 2016’ – the first time these annual awards have featured a dedicated category for the breakbulk sector.
Kyriacos Panayides, AAL’s Managing Director, picked-up the award on the carrier’s behalf. He commented, “This is a tremendous honour and especially significant in that the award was independently voted for by the readers of Lloyd’s Loading List – a readership comprising of our customers, partners and associates from all over the world.”
He continued, “Breakbulk Operator of the Year 2016 is the fifth industry award for AAL in the past two years and is dedicated to all our teams on land and sea, who work tirelessly to provide the 24/7 commitment to excellence that our global service is built upon, and such industry honours recognise.”
This latest win for AAL is recognition of a sustained period of growth and development in which it has expanded its global footprint, boosted its operating fleet capacity, and launched new added value services, like scheduled semi-liner sailings between the Middle East and its key trading partners.
