History Of Sea-air Traffic Who With ACL In 70s?

in the 70s the Atlantic Container Line (ACL) offered sea-air traffic transportation from the US and Canada to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The freight was transported from New York, Baltimore, Halifax and Montreal to Antwerp and Rotterdam, then by truck to Luxembourg from which it was shipped by air to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Since this sea-air traffic service is considered as the revival of the not so successful sea-air traffic service that was offered from 1963 on (the date it got invented by Air Canada), I am really curious what was the airline that flew the freight from Luxembourg to the middle east? Was it Cargolux? What kind of freighters did they use?

Any information appreciated.
