After a really long wait, Congo Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo rejoice as they prepare themselves to welcome the newer avenues after being connected to the world.
Finally, MSC announced the opening of new markets: Congo Republic (CR) with Pointe Noire and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with Matadi.
The first sailing from Asia to Pointe-Noire, on the Africa Express service, will be on January 4, 2023 from Xingang, connecting India to Pointe-Noire via trans-shipment Colombo. Additionally, Pointe-Noire will be added to the Angola service, serving as a transshipment call for cargo from Asia to Angola calling Lunda and Namibe ports, and Walvis Bay in Namibia.
Alongside, MSC will also start a feeder service between Pointe-Noire (CR) and Matadi (DRC), which will help expand their trade opportunities exponentially with the Asian, European, and Indian markets.
