ALS will continue to operate under its own brand as a Wallenius Wilhelmsen company and be headed by managing director, René Van De Vin.  

ALS will be responsible for sourcing “asset-light” services for the Wallenius Wilhelmsen customers, especially in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

René Van De Vin said: “By joining forces, we will capitalize both on the decades of experience with specialized abnormal cargo logistics and the global reach and network of Wallenius Wilhelmsen. The key is to optimize the customers’ experience across breakbulk, high and heavy and the auto cargo segments and enhance joint product delivery.”
