The airport shuttle buses, manufactured in Beijing and built for JC Trans Shanghai, each measures almost 14m in length, 3m in height and 3m in width, loaded and discharged using the vessel’s side-mounted, heavy lift cranes.
Frank Mueller, general manager of AAL’s liner services division, commented: “We compete head-to-head with ro-ro carriers for this type of cargo and ultimately proposed and delivered a more efficient and safe lo-lo (load-on/load-off) solution for the customer.
“Our multipurpose fleet offers extreme flexibility and our liner services provide regular access to hub and remote ports across Asia, Australia and New Zealand – so we are very competitive for all types of breakbulk, project and heavy lift cargo,” Mueller said.
AAL operates a regular and dedicated liner services division that connects Asia with Australia/New Zealand and West Coast North America. The AUEC service connecting Asia to Australia and New Zealand deploys AAL’s A-Class vessels (31,000 dwt) each with a combined lifting capacity of 700 tonnes.
