Emirates adds South China to Asia/Africa loop
Emirates Shipping Line last month added two calls in South China to a service linking Southeast Asia and East Africa, the line said Wednesday.
The line’s four-ship AFA service now has a rotation of Hong Kong, Shekou, Singapore, Port Klang, Colombo, Mombassa, Tanga, Dar Es Salaam, Singapore and Hong Kong. American Shipper affiliate ComPair Data, said the service, which was updated in its database in mid-April, has an average vessel size of 1,968 TEUs. The new calls are the only direct connection for Emirates from South China to Africa.
