Liner Agency Sao Tomé
Supermaritime Logistics BV, Rotterdam, are the General Agents for West-Africa Cargo Services (WACS), a vessel operating company that runs a two-weekly break-bulk and container service between Lisbon (Southern-Europe) and the island of Sao Tomé (West-Africa), where the Supermaritime Group has established a line-representative office.
The service has been in operation since 2001 with 4 small multipurpose – geared vessels – with a DWT up to 7000ts, which offer a lifting capacity on average of 75 tons (tandem operations). Due to the shallow draft of the vessels, the service is able to call at ports with draft restrictions and limited quayside length.
With a fleet of over 1000 dry van (20ft – 40ft) containers, the line is able to offer containerized cargo services for the trade routes to and from Sao Tome, in addition to its break-bulk cargo services.
