A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has resumed booking acceptance onto its 25Z service – Kisiwa Express operating between Mombasa in Kenya and Zanzibar.
Logistics company, Africa Global Logistics (AGL), has recently signed a management agreement with the Zanzibar Port Corporation to oversee operations in the terminal.
Under the agreement, AGL will be responsible for cargo handling operations and marine services at the country’s main port facility.
“The company is committed to investing in the modernisation projects and with the installation of new equipment, we expect to see improved productivity and a reduction of waiting time,” Maersk reported.
Maersk has added another feeder on the new 26Z service, the Korosho Express, in efforts to provide sufficient capacity for all of its customers volumes.
The two vessels will call Mombasa terminal at a 42-day frequency each, with berthing spaced 21 days apart.
This announcement comes a month after Maersk announced the completion of its divestment of Maersk Supply Service (MSS), a leading provider of global offshore marine services and project solutions for the energy sector.
