Singapore’s Pacific International Lines is to launch a new single-ship intra-West Africa feeder in November. For this purpose PIL has chartered the geared 630 teu container-multipurpose vessel PLATRES and deploy her under the new name KOTA MOLEK.
As of 7 November, the vessel will commence fortnightly sailings between Lome, Conakry, Freetown, Monrovia, Lome. PIL will advertise the new service as its ‘WA2’.
Via Togo’s capital Lome, PIL will offer transhipment between the new ‘WA2’ and its ‘SW2’ service to the Far East. Additional transhipment options are offered through the carrier’s service to the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
