A spokesperson for ALL commented about the new cooperation, “AAL and HMM share valuable expertise serving this trade and solid reputations for trust and quality. By pooling our resources, we can each offer more comprehensive service portfolios with improved frequency, capacity, coverage and economies of scale for our customers. There will be no collaboration on pricing and we will each pursue bookings under our own respective brands, with separate commercial teams and bills of lading.”

Further emphasizing, “Through this cooperation with AAL, we can provide a higher quality of service to our valued customers” and that “we will put our utmost effort to further expand our market share in order to create more profitability.” It also added, “we can now provide a wider solution to our customers through possible expansion of the cooperation with AAL outside Middle East region.”
