AAL opens in Genoa

AAL has opened an office in Genoa, Italy, strengthening the carrier’s European network.

 

The Singapore-headquartered shipping line said the opening of AAL Italia is in response to the growing demand within the country for more competitive tramp options to and from major trading points around the world. 

The office will be led by chartering director Alessandro De Vincentiis and president Michela Villa, both of whom have experience working with AAL since 2015. 
 
“After a very challenging period for the local market, I am truly excited to see a resurgence in project cargo demand from Italy into markets like Asia, Africa and Australasia and the USA,” said De Vincentiis.
 
Felix Schoeller, global general manager at AAL, added that the Italian office will work closely with the carrier’s European hub office in Hamburg.
