We're nuts about your cashew - supply chain solutions in Africa

For your cashew's journey, we promise the best care and on-time delivery. Any step of the way.

Is it a fruit? Is it a nut? Or a seed?

Beneath a bright, fleshy cashew-apple hangs a dull dry pod. In time, it will change colour from pale grey to a dull brown and emerge from within its kernel in a warm yellow avatar, to enrich our dishes and become the toast of our curries. It’s the story of the ugly duckling that became a swan.

This is why Maersk loves the cashew. And we’d love to be a reason your cashew reaches every corner of the world.

Our cashew logistics is about constant care and support through any leg of your journey from West Africa to India and Vietnam. Be it inland transport, customs services, or shipping, ours is a promise to be where you need us.

At Maersk, we understand that cashew quality is priceless. We are therefore offering integrated logistics for raw cashew — right from the farms in Africa — for quick, cost-effective and reliable deliveries, all the way to overseas processing facilities.

How we can help

From farms across West Africa to processing centres in India and Vietnam, your cashew undertakes many journeys. They are loaded on trucks that take them to cooperatives or warehouses, to depots and port terminals, from where they board an ocean liner to ports in Asia.

As an integrator of container logistics, Maersk aims to deliver your cashew to market as fast as possible, while always ensuring the right transport conditions to preserve the quality of your produce.

You can find us in 45 countries in Africa, including Ivory Coast, Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Ghana, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Nigeria, which are amongst the most important exporters of raw cashew nuts to the Vietnamese, Thai and Indian markets.

Our local teams have extensive experience in handling cashews’ transportation.
