MACS shipping company to supply St. Helena in future

Napoleon was once stuck on it until his death. Now the shipping company MACS has secured the contract to supply the remote Atlantic island of St. Helena.

The government of the British Overseas Territory announced the signing of the contract shortly before the turn of the year. The shipping company has now provided further details. Accordingly, the new service will start from Immingham via Cape Town to St. Helena on January 27 with the ship “Golden Karoo”. The first departure from Cape Town directly to Rupert’s Bay is scheduled for March 6. [ds_preview]

MACS (Maritime Carrier Shipping), based in Hamburg, won the tender process and proved to be “the most suitable provider for providing the service”, according to the statement.

The contract has a term of five years and can be extended for a further five years. It has been agreed that the island will be called at approximately every four weeks. As part of the agreement, a ship will sail regularly between St. Helena, Cape Town and Walvis Bay.
