The French African Maritime Agencies Guinea and logistics provider Lalemant have decided to set up a new regular service for breakbulk cargo and containers between the Belgian port of Ghent and the African country of Guinea. 

The new breakbulk line, Kamsar Express, offers a direct connection between the ports of Ghent and Port Kamsar every four to five weeks.

“Conventional goods, project cargo and containers are the most important goods that the specialized multifunctional vessels will transport. The ships are fitted with their own cranes having a lifting capacity of 60 to 160 tonnes,” the port of Ghent said.

Quay at Stukwerkers in the Ghent Grootdok will be the main loading point but it will also be possible to call at other ports upon request, according to the port of Ghent.

Kamsar Express is the second regular line between the port of Ghent and Guinea.

“This second regular line is open to everyone and an addition to the already existing regular line for specific customers,” the port of Ghent added.
