There is a new breakbulk service between Brazil and West Africa
Marguisa Shipping Lines, part of the Sea & Ports Group, has launched a new service between Brazil and West Africa, enhancing the connection between the two regions. The company noted that the SAWAF RoRo service, launched in 2020 already will now be complemented by a semi-liner breakbulk service with the help of its local agent Newal.
Marguisa has seen the signs of growing demand for breakbulk shipments in this particular trade. The new service is a response to the signs as it will provide monthly sailings ensuring timely and consistent transportation of goods between Brazil and West Africa.
Marguisa’s extensive network and expertise in the region enable the company to provide tailored solutions that meet the specific requirements of different industries, including project cargo, heavy machinery, and other breakbulk shipments, the company said.
“We are excited to introduce the new SAWAF service and further strength our presence in the Brazilian & West African market”, said Juan Arroyo Guinea, Managing Director of Marguisa Shipping Lines.
Combining RoRo with breakbulk service
This strategic expansion allows Marguisa to offer a comprehensive service that combines its RoRo operations with the new breakbulk service.
“We are confident in the success of the new SAWAF service in partnership with Marguisa Shipping Lines. With our many years of experience in the trade from South America to West Africa, we believe on a promising future,” said Arnaldo Santos, Commercial Director of Newal.
The company said in its statement that it understands the need for reliable and regular maritime service for the ports of West Africa.
