As your end-to-end logistics partner, we are constantly seeking ways to expand our network and improve the efficiency of our services. That is why we are pleased to announce that we are implementing changes to improve the reliability of our South Africa to Middle East product.

We will be making below changes to our Protea Service in order to deliver a best-in-class service for our customers over the upcoming citrus season.
The Reunion and Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) Port calls will be removed from the rotation.

South Africa / Middle East Service New Rotation
South Africa / Middle East Service New Rotation
Durban – Jebel Ali - Mundra –Jawaharlal Nehru– Durban

Imports to Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) will be handled via our weekly feeder setup from Durban to Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth).

The new rotation will be effective from the CMA CGM VALPARISO 415S/ 420N scheduled to call Durban on Thursday the 16th of May.

The adjusted setup will run on an 8 weeks proforma thus introducing one additional week buffer on the service to ensure an improved level of schedule reliability.

We want to help you plan and deliver on your supply chains by having reliable transit times at the time of booking.
