February 18 - Effective early April, SafmarineMPV's SAFWAF multi-purpose shipping service (connecting South Africa and West Africa) will be upgraded from six-weekly to monthly sailings.

The shipping line will inject additional tonnage, adding one or two vessels, and claims that the enhanced schedule will allow it to deliver a more extensive port coverage through inducement into the Central West Africa port range (Cameroon to Ivory Coast).

Hub ports of call on the SAFWAF service are Walvis Bay, Durban, Cape Town, Sonils (Luanda), Matadi, Pointe Noire and Port Gentil.

Pictured below, we see risers shipped on the service.
