Maersk has announced it will continue its seasonal inland and maritime service from the Gqeberha load port in South Africa to various destinations in North and South Europe.

The company, based in Denmark, plans to deploy a fleet of seven ships, each equipped with around 450 refrigerated containers, to provide weekly service beginning in May 2024.

The “Fruit Bridge” Service by Maersk will facilitate the export of goods from Gqeberha, connecting to different locations through transshipment points in Algeciras, Spain, and Port Tangier, Morocco.

The inaugural call at Gqeberha for this service will be made by the container vessel Celsius Boston, constructed in 2007, in the 20th week of the year.
