Transinsular expands into West Africa

Transinsular, part of Portugal’s GRUPO ETE, is now calling Gambia and Guinea-Conacry, following the recent implementation of a regular southbound call in Algeciras

The Lince class service, supported by the Atoba feeder service from Cape Verde, will offer new biweekly calls into Banjul and Conakry, thereby continuing to develop the concept of delivering regular services to West African niche markets, whilst maintaining a commitment of zero compromise on schedule reliability for its customers.


Through ongoing development of its Cape Verdian hub concept, and transhipment of cargoes onto smaller vessels, Transinsular says it will continue to bypass port congestion issues at its destination terminals by capitalising on the size of its feeder, thereby guaranteeing the advertised schedule, and sold transit time.


Transinsular claims that its West Africa services present the best lo-lo transit times from Portugal, Spain, Turkey and North Europe to Cape Verde, Banjul, Conakry and Bissau.

Transinsular claims that its West Africa services present the best lo-lo transit times from Portugal, Spain, Turkey and North Europe to Cape Verde, Banjul, Conakry and Bissau.


CEO Claus Larner said: "We are pleased to further expand our West Africa scope by offering unique tailormade solutions, anchored in schedule reliability and improved transit times for our customers in North Europe, the Iberian Peninsula and East Mediterranean.


Tom Collin, Europe-Africa Director, added: "Differentiating our product is key and developing our Cape Verdian hub is an essential part of our West African strategy. Deploying a feeder that can easily navigate through the smaller destinations, provides a truly premium product to markets that sometimes suffer severe congestion - delivering a competitive edge to our customers."
