Heavy and precious, like the Italian porphiry with destination Senegal
“Sub-Saharan Africa: Italian exports towards this area have increased significantly (+ 7.2%), supported by a positive evolution in some of the main target markets: South Africa, Nigeria, Senegal and Kenya. (…) In Senegal, the largest sector for the Italian export was the extractive one”. (Sace Simest 2019 Report)
More generally, Italian exports towards Sub-Saharan Africa in 2019 are expected to increase by +6%, with Kenya and Senegal expected to increase even faster.
Our last experience on sea freight shipping services to Senegal confirms this trend.
Our client, an Italian construction contractor working in Senegal, already “protagonist” of one of our previous case histories (cross trade Brazil Senegal), relied again on our sea freight shipping services. He needed to import there some Italian porphyry, a rock of magmatic origin.
We shipped four 20’DV containers of porphiry designed for the outdoor flooring of a luxury residence in Dakar.
If we think about the high specific gravity of the carried material, we can say to have provided a sea freight shipping service “of great weight”.
The containers left from Genova Port and arrived in Dakar, with direct sea service and a transit time of 11 days.
Our Italian client in Senegal collected his heavy goods with a light heart!
