africa Ports & Ships

Welcome to Africa’s inclusive maritime news portal, covering the entire sub-Continent.

africa PORTS & SHIPS is a South African-based news and maritime information service bringing you news from the maritime industry throughout the sub-Saharan continent.

Coverage includes news of international and local shipping companies, news and information from the ports and harbours of our continent, from the wider transport industry including road and rail and the logistics sector generally.

We provide not only hard news but the sharing of trade information is encouraged provided it has some relevance to operations within the regions being covered.

africa PORTS & SHIPS will also carry information about the principal ports and harbours, their contact details and operational achievement. We continue to bring the important and popular Ship Movement reports from many of those ports.

Use the sidebar on the left of the page to navigate to where you want to go. A search engine covering the contents on this site is included; likewise we intend building a comprehensive MARITIME SERVICES DIRECTORY that will also feature. This is still under construction but let us know if you’d like your company details to be added.

A Newsletter is also available which carries links for the daily news direct to your mail box. Use the sign-up box in the navigation sidebar to the left. If listed previously with Ports & Ships you will continue automatically receiving the Newsletter.
