Evergreen Line is teaming up with United Africa Feeder Line (UAFL) to extend its service network in the Indian Ocean.
Evergreen announce a new ISC-Mauritius-Mozambique-Africa (IMMA) Service linking the Indian sub-continent, Indian Ocean Islands and Mozambique will be launched in late April.
Employing three 2,500 TEU vessels, the biweekly service will have its inaugural sailing from Karachi on the 22nd of April 2-13. The port rotation will then follow as Mundra - Colombo - Port Louis - Tamatave - Durban - Maputo - Nacala - Karachi. Evergreen Line will provide two of the ships and UAFL the third.
The IMMA service offers a direct link between the Indian subcontinent and the emerging markets of Southeast Africa and its scope can be further extended with on-carriage services offered to neighboring islands in Indian Ocean and inland destinations within the African continent. The service is Evergreen's latest bid to fulfill growing customer demand to develop new markets and follows the line's recent service extensions into other parts of East Africa, as well as the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia, during the first quarter this year.
