Atlantic Container Line (ACL) has maintained its reputation as the highest quality carrier on the North Atlantic trades for almost half a century. Its Ro/Ro and container services are renowned for their speed, schedule reliability and equipment quality. The company offers a portfolio of five weekly sailings covering 16 ports in Northern Europe, the United States and Canada.

Setting ACL apart from its competitors is its fleet of five unique G-3 Ro/Ro-Containerships that can carry a combination of 2,000 TEU of containers, 550 TEU equivalents of heavy equipment, project and oversized cargo, and up to 2,000 vehicles. The ACL fleet - the biggest vessels of their kind in the world - have an angled two-lane stern quarter ramp of 450-ton capacity. This allows the carriage of the largest and heaviest transformers, construction machinery and projects. Separate internal ramp systems within the vessels segregate cars from other vehicles, mafi trailers and break-bulk cargo. All of ACL's vessels are ISO 14001 Environmental Quality Certified and ISM Safety and Environmental Quality Certified, meeting the highest environmental standards.

ACL's fleet links up with the Grimaldi services in Hamburg and Antwerp, allowing fast transhipment connections to an extensive list of ports in the Mediterranean, West Africa and South America.
