Unit History: Atlantic Container Line

Atlantic Container Line
For over thirty years, ACL’s pioneering spirit has been the driving force that has made this company a leader in the North Atlantic Trade and one of the most respected names in the ocean transportation.
 
1965-67
A consortium of five major European steamship companies join together to meet the high capital investment involved in building and operating an innovative fleet of roll-on/roll-off containerships. This historic union, the first of the container age, results in the creation of Atlantic Container Line (ACL), serving the trade between Europe and East Coast of North America. The "Atlantic Span," is the first of ACL’s four G-1 (first generation) vessels. These 700 TEU Roll-on/Roll-off (RORO) Containerships are the most unique in the world and dramatically change the concept of transportation.
