New ship for Angola service
Jul 30, 2005
Angola South Line has added a second vessel to its South Africa-Angola service enabling Durban to be included in the call rotation for the first time since the service began 13 years ago – a move that will make the service clearly more attractive to Johannesburg/Gauteng exporters.
The new ship, a 3,500-dwt tweendecker with two 35-ton deck cranes, has been renamed Angola Express. The ship made her first call at Durban last week.
The vessel, formerly named Bristol Spirit, is similar to another Angola South Line vessel already in service, Blue Sky.
Having two ships provides clients with the opportunity to ship on this service out of Durban and Cape Town every 14 days with calls at all Angola ports, said Captain Brian Hawkins of the Durban agents, Mainport Africa.
Meihuizen International continues as the Cape Town agents with Seascape looking after the Johannesburg interests of the line.
One of Angola South Line’s distinct advantages over other services calling at Angola is that it maintain regular calls at all the Angolan ports including Namibe, Soyo, Cabinda, Lobito, Malongo and Luanda. The line accepts breakbulk, bulk, reefer and containerised cargoes to all these ports.
