A Singapore-based ocean transport company plans to start making regular calls at the Port of Everett. Austral Asia Line, AAL for short, is a subsidiary of Schoeller Holdings. The company specializes in moving heavy equipment to and from the Far East. Its cargoes often are used to support the energy industry.
The port made the announcement about the new business on Friday.
AAL joins six other shipping lines that call at the Port of Everett. The company operates three vessels capable of lifting 700 tons. The first AAL vessel was scheduled to arrive in Everett on Saturday.
