In addition, a new feeder route, the Ingonyama route, will be created to connect the port of East London, South Africa, with Coega once a week.

According to MSC, the new service will provide a direct marine connection between East London’s manufacturing heartland and one of South Africa’s main ports, providing a viable alternative to truck travel between the two.

The weekly service will begin with the TOKATA F sailing from Coega on 25 March 2024.

In December 2023, MSC announced the enhancement of its Sentosa-Shikra pendulum service.

That same month, Port of Hamburg Beteiligungsgesellschaft SE, a totally-owned subsidiary of MSC, announced the outcome of its voluntary public takeover offer for Hamburger Hafen und Logistik Aktiengesellschaft (HHLA) at the conclusion of the extra acceptance time.
