by Canadian Shipper

In line with its plans to expand its reach and grow its coverage, Safmarine has replaced its 1400 TEU vessel Safmarine Nolizwe with a 2063 TEU capacity containership Safmarine Tugela in the America Express Container Services between Southern Africa and the United States and Canada.

A second ship, the Safmarine Infanta, will also be replaced with a larger vessel during December 2001.

“The new vessel represents a substantial increase in capacity for both general purpose and integral reefer containers,” says Duncan Mackintosh, trade manager, Safmarine.

Safmarine offers its customers a named day, weekly express container service for general purpose and reefer cargo on the route. Ports served are Durban-Port Elizabeth-Cape Town-New York (with relay to Halifax, Montreal and Toronto)-Baltimore-Newport News (with relay to Oakland, Long Beach and Portland)-Charleston (with relay to Savannah)-Freeport (with relay to Miami, Houston, New Orleans, Vera Cruz and Altamira).
