PIL cuts capacity in East Africa

Tue, Oct 30, 2018
Largest vessel provider offers 24% less capacity on trade

PIL will trim the EA2 Service. This service will henceforth turn around in Singapore, from where we can still connect to East Africa by transshipment. The EAS Service will continue as previously.

PIL is the largest vessel provider in East Africa. These changes reduce the capacity of PIL by 24% with effect 13.11.2018. This drastic step is aimed at mitigating the excess capacity in the weak market on this lane. The service change is branded a “winter schedule” and expected to last during Q4/2018 and Q1/2019.

Please contact your PIL Team at Ozean for any further information you may require. Manuel and his team will be happy to hear from you.
