  • Zénith Line accélère sa desserte de la COA
    La compagnie maritime Zénith Line, qui assure depuis avril 2001 une desserte régulière de la côte occidentale de l’Afrique (COA), donne ces jours-ci une nouvelle impulsion à ses opérations, qui se traduit par l’adjonction d’un troisième navire. Cela rend possible une accélération de la fréquence qui, d’un départ par mois, passe à 21 jours. Le partenariat qu’implique ce service, a également subi une modification, en ce sens que Conti-Lines en est devenu l’acteur principal avec 50%, les deux autres armements, à savoir Secam Gabon et Marfret, intervenant chacun à raison de 25%.
