Antwerp breakbulk agency remains confident

March 10 - A neutral breakbulk and heavy lift shipping agency, launched last year in Antwerp, remains in buoyant mood despite the current choppy waters facing much of the global marketplace.

Hans van der Woude of Antwerp Breakbulk Agencies (ABA) says the agency was established as its founders believe it has a viable business offering to make to the heavy lift and project cargo markets which is reflected in the caliber of the lines that it has already attracted.

"ABA is an independent commercial agency representing shipping lines with various complementary sailing routes which enables us to find the customer the best possible shipping solution in the most cost-effective way. We strongly believe that our concept is the right one. This is confirmed by the growing number of valued customers and therefore we do not fear the turbulent period in which our industry is in right now."

ABA currently represents two of German line Intersee's liner services, the Mediterranean and Black Sea services of Hartel Shipping, ro-ro services of UK-based Mann Lines and MedAsia, an import service from China. Liner calls are made by ABA's principals at such ports as Houston, Tampico, Montreal, Hamilton, Chicago, Kaliningrad, Gdynia, Turku, Pitea, Paldiski, Genoa, Eregli, Constantza, Odessa, Poti and other ports on inducement.
