Sea & Ports Group Finalizes Acquisition of NAL Maroc, Strengthening African Presence

Sea & Ports Group, a prominent player in the maritime industry, has successfully completed the acquisition of NAL Maroc Maritime Agency, solidifying its foothold in the African continent. The acquisition, approved by the Competition Council of Morocco, marks a strategic move by Sea & Ports to expand its operations and service portfolio in the region.

Headquartered in Casablanca and with additional presence in Tangier and Agadir, NAL Maroc has been representing the renowned South Korean shipping company, HMM, since 2021. With the recent acquisition of the agency, Sea & Ports now holds 100% ownership, having initially acquired a portion in 2022. This move further reinforces Sea & Ports’ commitment to becoming a key player in the traffic through the Strait of Gibraltar.

Raed N. De Las Casas, the General Manager of Sea & Ports Group, emphasized that the acquisition aligns with the company’s long-term strategy of establishing a more active presence in Africa and its main ports. The Group aims to offer high-quality services based on their core values, benefiting both their clients and Moroccan society as a whole. The consolidation of operations in Morocco is expected to present exciting opportunities and challenges, driving the expansion of services and business lines in the maritime, transportation, and logistics sectors.

Having already been the exclusive representative of HMM in Spain, Portugal, Algeria, and Tunisia, the complete acquisition of NAL Maroc further bolsters Sea & Ports’ position in the region. The Group is now better equipped to serve as a crucial link in international trade and facilitate the flow of goods across African ports. By optimizing services and increasing market share, the acquisition is set to lead to improved efficiency and profitability.

In addition to the representation of HMM, Sea & Ports Group has also secured the role of representative for Marguisa Shipping Lines in Morocco. This maritime line, within the Sea & Ports Group, will bolster the company’s presence in Moroccan trade with West Africa, providing an added advantage in an evolving market.

The acquisition of NAL Maroc demonstrates Sea & Ports Group’s commitment to its mission of expanding its reach and providing unparalleled value to its customers. The Group’s dedication to quality services and a robust portfolio enables it to meet the growing demands of the maritime industry in the region.

As Sea & Ports Group embarks on this new phase, its focus on sustainability, efficiency, and collaboration will undoubtedly contribute to the further development of Morocco’s maritime sector. With its enhanced presence in Africa, Sea & Ports is well-positioned to capitalize on emerging opportunities and create lasting partnerships with stakeholders across the continent.

In conclusion, the completion of the acquisition of NAL Maroc signifies a significant milestone in Sea & Ports Group’s growth strategy. By solidifying its position in Morocco and the African continent, the Group is set to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of maritime trade in the region. As the company continues to uphold its values and deliver unparalleled services, its impact on the maritime, transportation, and logistics sectors is expected to be far-reaching and positive.
