ANL Container Line Managing Director John Lines today commented that Tasmanian exporters and importers had no reason to be concerned about the lack of direct international container vessel calls in Tasmania.
“ANL have been catering to Tasmanian importers and exporters for over 50 years and will continue to do so. We are here to stay”.
“ANL is part of the CMA CGM Group, which is the third largest container line in the world, and can offer sailings to and from Tasmania six days per week. These sailings connect at Melbourne under a through bill of lading with ANL’s extensive international services that cover the globe including North and South East Asia, Europe, USA, PNG, New Zealand and the Indian sub continent” said Mr. Lines.
Since establishing the joint service with Toll Shipping in 2009 to create the Toll ANL Bass Strait Shipping which operates between Tasmania and Melbourne, ANL has provided importers and exporters in Tasmania a far more reliable and frequent service than previously offered by any other carrier including any direct Tasmanian callers.
“With six sailings per week between Tasmania and the mainland connecting to our fixed day international services we can provide the most frequent, extensive and reliable service to Tasmanian businesses dealing in international trade” Mr Lines commented.
Mr. Lines went on to say “ANL has staff in Tasmania headed up by our Launceston based state manager; Maurice Fischer, who can provide expert advice and options to any Tasmanian based businesses that require assistance with international cargoes”.
