Atlantic Container Line (ACL) operates on the North Atlantic trades as a specialized carrier of containers, project, breakbulk and oversized cargo, heavy equipment and vehicles. Since 1967, ACL has the distinction of being Europe’s first containership operator and currently deploys the world’s largest combination RORO/ Containerships.
ACL has a better way to transport hard-to-handle cargoes. RORO, breakbulk or project cargo loads directly at the customer’s factory and rolled directly into our protected RORO/Containership’s garage deck. Upon arrival, the cargo is driven off to its final destination with no special packing required.
A portfolio of five weekly transatlantic sailings covering ports in Europe, the USA and Canada. ACL’s main Container/RORO Service calls weekly at Baltimore, Norfolk, New York and Halifax, Liverpool, Antwerp, Hamburg and Gothenburg. In addition to this service, ACL provides four additional pure container strings covering sixteen ports in Europe and North America.
ACL is a Grimaldi Group of Naples, Italy company. Grimaldi’s services and operating scope proved to be an excellent complement to ACL’s own operation, which offers Container and Roll-On/Roll-Off Services between North America and West Africa and oversized RORO Service to South America and the Mediterranean. With a strong network of transportation partners, ACL also offers worldwide RORO Services.
Over 5,000 customers utilize ACL’s services each year. Our staff members are located in ISO 9001 quality certified offices throughout Europe, the United States and Canada. All ACL’s vessels are ISO 14001 Environmentally Certified. We also maintain a fleet of over 13,000 containers and other RORO equipment. ACL holds ISPS certification and is a certified C-TPAT participant.
Our door-to-door pick-up and delivery service and through-bills-of-lading are integral parts of ACL’s transportation service. We have developed our own state-of-the-art computer system, iATLAS that is also being licensed to other ocean carriers.
Atlantic Container Line will completely replace our current fleet of five, G-3 vessels in 2015. The new G-4s are multipurpose, RORO Containerships and will incorporate a totally new vessel design and expand ACL’s capacity to handle Containers, Vehicles, Oversized Cargo, Breakbulk and Project Cargo.
Headquartered in Westfield, New Jersey, ACL’s offices are located throughout North America and Europe.
