Door-to-Door Service in West Africa
Exports from Africa
To ensure the continued stability of the African economy, it is not sufficient to focus solely on the export of abundant resources such as gold, diamonds, ores, etc., but also to sustainably develop on local economies. This includes not only developing local production capacity for domestic demand, but also developing this further for export to other countries. For this reason, we promise to promote “Made in Africa”, and provide specialized support to your imports from Africa. Furthermore, if you are looking for specific contacts in the countries of origin, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
Roll on / Roll off (RORO)
Conventional services with specialized roll on/roll off (RORO) ships or ConRo ships (ships for both containers and rolling cargo) offer a wide range of options for transport. These are commonly used for self-propelled cargo such as cars, trucks, or construction machinery, as well as for towable cargo such as trailers, agricultural equipment, etc. Oversized and extra-heavy goods can furthermore be shipped on specialized Mafi trailers.
We have close ties to specialized freight lines that operates break bulk vessels for general cargo, that is not expected to be loaded into container, as well as for heavy and oversized cargo, which needs to be loaded and discharged by vessel’s own cranes. We will plan and book your shipment with either a conventional shipping line or by charter ship, depending on requirements and availability.
ODC = Overdimensioned Cargo or HL = Heavy Lifts as well as complex projects, which need an individual combination of above mentioned shipping possibilties, are a welcome challange for which we will work out with you a tailormade solution. Please contact us.
