In late 2015, Albert Pegg was asked by the Atlas Group of Networks to start up a new network specializing in breakbulk and project cargo named Atlas Breakbulk Alliance, which he now leads. From May 2007 until October 2015 he also was a Senior Advisor and Business Development Manager for the Antwerp Port Authority. Pegg embarked on a lengthy career with CMB-Transport, now known as Safmarine, after graduating from Antwerp University. He gained expertise in maritime operations through a variety of commercial, managerial and executive positions, eventually leading the Antwerp agencies and the MPV Division of the company. Pegg left Safmarine in 2007 and started his own consultancy company Enerjetixx, where he continues to provide professional advice on all aspects of breakbulk and project maritime transport.
The Atlas Breakbulk Alliance is part of the Atlas Group of Networks. The focus of ABA is on quality, creating added value, and peace of mind through smart ICT-programs and financial protection through clever insurance policies, along with a strict code of ethics and continuous personal development. The alliance’s vision is to be the ultimate project cargo and breakbulk network of independent privately owned freight forwarders, recognized by this specialized industry, be it beneficial cargo owners, ship-owners/operators, heavy lifting and rigging companies as the alliance, where quality is a given.
