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.”
