SHG has been made aware that the operation of an additional sea freight service to St Helena is being considered by a private shipping company, under the agency of Meihuizen International.
Last year SHG invited tenders from parties interested in providing a longer term sea freight service to the island. Following a procurement process, SHG chose to partner with MACS Maritime Carrier Shipping GmbH & Co (MACS).
The new MACS service, due to arrive here in March, will provide the island with a regular scheduled service. By having a contracted provider to deliver this service, the island is guaranteed a sea freight solution for several years to come.
