Switzerland-based container shipping major Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is introducing a new RO-RO West Africa Service for rolling, project and breakbulk cargo.
This new RO-RO Service to West Africa will start on February 19 from Le Havre, the company said.
Two vessels will be deployed, MSC Immacolata and MSC Cristiana, operating on a fortnight basis with the following rotation: Le Havre, Antwerp, Dakar, Conakry, Abidjan, Le Havre.
“In addition to rolling or wheeled cargo this new service offering will have the flexibility to cover a range of out-of-gauge and breakbulk cargo, which will be typically large, heavy pieces, or critical equipment for specific projects,” MSC added.
MSC has been serving African markets since 1971 and has a considerable agency presence across more than 40 countries.
