February 12 - The Grimaldi Group's roll-on/roll-off carrier, Atlantic Container Line, says it does have long-term plans to order five new multi-purpose ships, but is yet to begin discussions with yards.

Grimaldi House, a brand-new 41,000 sq ft commercial office building is home to the carrier's corporate trade management, finance, logistics, operations, IT, risk management and human resources teams. ACL's North American and European Customer Service Centre locations remain unchanged.

ACL's new address is: 50 Cardinal Drive, Westfield, NJ 07090. Tel: 908-518-5300.
