MSC’s West Africa Service started calls at DP World London Gateway with the visit of the MSC Sabrina on 27 June. The service calls at ports including Dakar, Abidjan, Lagos, Tema with transit times of around 22 days.

MSC UK commercial director, Michael Collins, said: “This move follows the reconfiguration of our West African services and we have decided, as we aim to continue to deliver the highest level of service to our customers, that our UK call to West Africa will now load from DP World London Gateway.

The new route brings to 15 the number of weekly services calling at the port, which now claims direct, deep-sea access available to and from more of the world’s locations than any other UK container port.
