Brockmann joins AAL

AAL has appointed Marc-Oliver Brockmann as its European commercial manager.

Brockmann joins AAL from international breakbulk and project cargo broker COLI Schiffahrt & Transport.

He started at COLI in 1992 as a chartering broker and was appointed as general manager of COLI’s Antwerp office in 2005. He was named managing director of the Hamburg office in 2010 and subsequently became managing director of the group’s Korean branch in 2013.

Commenting on his experience in the field, Brockmann said: “I grew up with COLI and during my tenure gained extensive knowledge of the project cargo market and particularly the trade between Europe and Asia – its ebbs and flows and key drivers. I hope now to share that expertise with AAL, an ocean carrier that I’ve worked with many times and highly respect for its professionalism and transparency in dealings.”

AAL has made a string of agency appointments and office launches across Europe, the most recent in Finland. AAL also opened an office in Genoa (Italy) during December, strengthening the carrier’s European network.

AAL’s agency network was grown last year with the appointment of Maritima Davila (Grupo Davila) in Spain, Breakbulk Project Agencies in France (a division of Shipping Agency Service Le Havre) and De Keyser Thornton in Belgium (to cover the Benelux region).
