New service: East Coast of the USA to West Africa
NileDutch, the container carrier specialising in West Africa, is about to introduce a new service to link the East Coast of the USA with West Africa and Europe. The rotation will start in New York and the service will run every nine days. The first vessel, the MV Cafer Dede will sail on February 16, 2016.
This development aims to meet the growing demand from exporters in the East coast of the USA for better access to their markets in West Africa. The new service will be operated by NileDutch in cooperation with Turkon Line.
The port rotation will be: New York – Norfolk - Savannah – Tangier. In Tangier the cargo will be transferred onto the NileDutch WEWA (West Europe – West Africa) service which calls on Abidjan, Pointe Noire, Luanda, Lobito and Namibe. All cargo towards the USA out of West Africa and Europe will be facilitated as well.
NileDutch not only serves these key West African ports but also operates an extensive network of feeder vessels in the region which carry cargo between regional ports (Matadi, Soyo, Boma, Bata, Malabo, Cabinda, Douala and Libreville).
