Spotted: AAL Hong Kong Transports Eight Buses

AAL Bus transport 2
AAL has successfully transported a fleet of eight newly-built airport shuttle buses from Xingang, China, to Melbourne, Australia, for its customer, JC Trans Shanghai.

The consignment of eight buses was moved in two separate shipments on the A-class multi-purpose vessel AAL Hong Kong, which operates on AAL’s Australia East Coast and New Zealand (AUEC) liner service.

The cargo was comprised of 8 buses, each measuring almost 14m in length, 3m in height and 3m in width, which were loaded and discharged using the vessel’s side-mounted, heavy lift cranes. The buses, manufactured in Beijing and transported for JC Trans Shanghai (part of the global logistics provider, JC Trans Group), were safely discharged in Melbourne and will be used on airport shuttle routes.

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 700mt.
