About us


ANL’s history goes back to 1956 when it was established by the Australian Government to operate shipping services around the Australian coast. Over time other routes were added and ANL entered the international trades to and from Australia. Over many decades ANL became the backbone of maritime activity in Australia taking goods around the coast or around the world. Since that time ANL’s volumes have rapidly grown.

ANL today has an extensive range of East-West services between Asia, Mediterranean, Indian Subcontinent and Europe and North America. In addition we continue to be a specialist in the Asia-Pacific region.

Like our parent company, ANL’s main objective is to offer customers all over the world a proactive, innovative service which reconciles quality and high performance with protection of the environment.

The CMA CGM Group, recognizing the value of the ANL brand throughout the region, acquired ANL from the Australian Government in 1998.

Headquartered in Melbourne Australia and with regional offices and agents around the globe, ANL is a part of the CMA CGM Group, the third largest container shipping line in the world. Taking our commitment further of constantly working towards increased customer satisfaction, we have officially commenced our Indian operations eff 1st July 2013.

We, at ANL, solely rely on our customer base and hope to continue with this partnership in future too.
