Grimaldi Compagnia di Navigazione is an operating shipowning and holding company registered in Italy, and – together with Atlantica di Navigazione – is one of the pillars of the Grimaldi Group. Grimaldi Compagnia’s core business is the Atlantic trades: between North Europe, West Africa and South America; between South America and West Africa; and also between North America and West Africa. Most of the Grimaldi-owned fleet is deployed on these routes. It includes a substantial number of Ro/Ro-Multipurpose Container Carriers (extremely flexible in carrying large volumes of cars, rolling cargo, containers, project and oversized cargo as well), and large Pure Car and Truck Carriers (PCTC). While the administrative, finance and ship management operations are based in Naples (Italy), the operative and commercial management of all the Atlantic lines is directed from the Group's London office.

Atlantica di Navigazione, one of the Group's most important companies has, since the mid-1990s, been at the centre of remarkable development in the shipment of European finished vehicles and integrated logistics. As far as the Northern Europe/Mediterranean trade is concerned, Atlantica conceived and developed the Euro-Med Network concept, a veritable maritime conveyor belt designed to transport any type of vehicle between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, often including direct delivery up to a single dealer's location. The Euro-Med network now operates as many as 35 ships with a total loading capacity of up to 120,000 cars or up to 100,000 linear meters of rolling cargo.

ACL provides a portfolio of five weekly transatlantic sailings covering 16 ports in Northern Europe, the United States and Canada. Since 2001, following ACL's acquisition by the Grimaldi Group, the company has been offering container and Ro/Ro services between North America and West Africa, the Mediterranean and South America.
