The core services of Fairseas are focused on bulk and breakbulk seafreight chartering and brokering activities, freight management and logistics and providing consultancy services to cargo interests and parties invested in shipping activities.

Fairseas seeks to provide value by providing cargo interests with efficient and cost effective sea transport and intermodal solutions along the African seaboard and the Indian Ocean rim including the Indian Ocean Island areas. Where appropriate, landside logistics, barging and lightering are dovetailed with seafreight solutions, making for a seamless through service for our clients from contracted point of despatch to delivery. Our extensive experience operating in developing Africa makes providing solutions in difficult areas our speciality.

Fairseas International acquired the SAFWAF MPV (South Africa to West Africa multipurpose service) in February 2016. This liner service continues to offer a 6 weekly frequency for breakbulk and containers calling Durban, Cape Town and Walvis Bay on the Southern African coast, with direct calls at Boma, Matadi, Pointe Noire, Sonils and inducement calls at various ports on route including Port Gentil.
