Transinsular penetrates further into West Africa
The Portuguese liner Transinsular, a Grupo ETE company, is enhancing its services following the recent implementation of a regular southbound call into Algeciras. The Lince class service, supported by the Atoba feeder service from Cape Verde, will now offer new biweekly calls into Banjul (Gambia), and Conakry (Guinea).
Through the ongoing development of its Cape Verdean hub concept, and the transhipment of cargoes onto smaller vessels, Transinsular will continue to bypass port congestion issues at its destination terminals by capitalising on the size of its feeder ships, thereby guaranteeing its schedule.
Transinsular’s Europe-Africa director, Tom Collin, said: "Deploying a feeder vessel that can easily navigate through the smaller destinations, provides a premium product to markets that sometimes suffer severe congestion."
The once per fortnight Lince Class sailing is operated with the ship "Leonie P", and connects up with the Atoba feeder service, operated with the "Lagoa". (kd)
