This month, Universal Africa Lines (UAL) will have five vessels calling at Onne port, Nigeria, an all-time record for the company.
Together with their offices in Houston (UAL America) and Copenhagen (UAL Chartering) and their dedicated agencies throughout Europe and Africa, they will have the MV Esen, MV Vega and the UAL Fortitude from North Europe and the Mediterranean and the MV HC Eva Marie and UAL Cologne from the US Gulf calling to Nigeria.
Known as the independent breakbulk niche carrier UAL remains one of the very few carriers still offering direct shipments to Nigeria.
“The reliability and consistency of the services offered by UAL have proven to be popular amongst our client base which consists of many of the well-known oil and gas companies and their subcontractors.” Samir Ferguen, Managing Director, UAL Chartering.
With its presence in West Africa spanning over four decades UAL continues to offer their clients standard liner services from the US Gulf and Europe to WAF a guaranteed sailing every three weeks using modern tonnage as well as more tailor-made solutions for those clients requiring a more personalised service.
