Change of NileDutch representation in the USA

NileDutch, the container and breakbulk specialist to West Africa, wishes to announce a change of representation in the USA.

As from May 2018 NileDutch America will be represented by Turkon America Inc.

The regular and reliable service offered by NileDutch connecting the East Coast of the USA to West Africa, Europe and East Mediterranean remains unchanged.

The first vessel operated by Turkon Line will be the MV Ibrahim Dede voy 1811E – ETA New York 11th May 2018.

The port rotation will be: New York – Norfolk - Savannah – Algeciras - Alexandria – Mersin – Istanbul – Evyap – Gemlik/Bursa – Izmir/Aliaga – Algeciras – New York.
In Algeciras, cargo will be transferred onto the NileDutch services between Europe and West Africa, calling on Dakar, Abidjan, Tema, Pointe Noire, Luanda, Kribi and Douala.

NileDutch not only serves these key West African ports but also operates an extensive network of feeder vessels in the region which carry cargo to/from regional ports (Lobito, Namibe, Matadi, Boma, Bata, Malabo, Cabinda, Soyo, Libreville and Sao Tome).

All cargo towards the USA out of West Africa and Europe will be facilitated as well.
