July 5 - Africa is one of the few regions of the world where there is genuine expectation of large scale heavy lift growth in the next decade, claims global shipping forwarder and agent Tuscor Lloyds.

This confidence has promoted Tuscor Lloyds to extend its freight forwarding services to cover many ports in Western Africa after many years serving ports in North and East Africa.

"The company has long offered services to locations such and Malabo and Tincan Island, but recent surges in demand and some large scale projects have prompted further expansion into the region," says the company. Tuscor Lloyds offers some less travelled routes to ports along the west coast and can now provide inland carriages to many more difficult to reach places in central and western Africa.

"As always, we offer strong project cargo, out of gauge, breakbulk, conventional and ro-ro services as part of our offering," the company adds.

The company has recently completed projects for civil engineering, heavy manufacturing and the energy sectors throughout the region, including a major contract moving a large pump for a mine ventilation/air extraction machine on a 40 ft flat rack container from Felixstowe to South Africa.
