Safmarine withdraws from U.S./Brazil trade
Safmarine has pulled out of the U.S./East Coast of South America container trade, where it had provided services in cooperation with Maersk Sealand and other carriers.
As a non-vessel-provider in this trade, the Belgian shipping line had taken slots on joint weekly services called the “Tango” and “Samba.”
A spokesman for Safmarine was not immediately available to comment on the reason for its withdrawal.
It is believed that Safmarine will continue to provide services between northern Europe and the East Coast of South America and between Asia and the East Coast of South America via the Mediterranean.
