Recent Western Cape Business News

SAFMARINE has enhanced its ‘225’ fully-containerised service between South Africa and West Africa by connecting West Africa via Dakar and Algeciras. The new weekly service, with high reefer capacity, will operate six vessels of 1100 teu (nominal) with direct calls in Durban, Cape Town, Dakar (Senegal) and Algeciras (Spain).

According to Safmarine Intra-Africa Corridor Manager, James Lewer: “The focus of the new enhanced 225 service on West Africa and its connection in Dakar will enable fast and reliable connections via the MW1 service to Tin Can Island and Douala. The additional new call in Algeciras also offers customers connections with our entire portfolio of services to and from West Africa, the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent, North America, South America and in particular the Intra - European feeder services in the West and Eastern Mediterranean”.

The first southbound sailing commenced with the MV Macuba in Algeciras on Tuesday 8 February and the MV Shanti which arrived in Durban on 5 February.

The 225 service is a wholly Safmarine operated service, partnered by sister company Maersk Line, through a slot charter agreement.
