Liner services are much about experience and connections particulary if you are talking about Africa. The Deutsche Afrika-Linien can reflect back on a long history in the trade. Shippers and passengers alike soon acknowledged the reliability, punctuality and speed of the liner services to Africa. These virtues are even more important today.
With personal advice over the phone or a visit to the customer, the staff of Deutsche Afrika-Linien are able to offer a service that has become uncommon in times dominated by computers. We will never forget that we deal with human beings.
Shipping is a challenge under extreme temperature conditions. Our container vessels are equipped for the carriage of refrigerated containers through the tropical regions of Africa. Our chemical tankers are prepared to transport bulk liquids throughout the polar circle because they are fitted with heating coils. Deutsche Afrika-Linien was among the first lines serving the African continent. John T. Essberger was a pioneer in the field of tanker shipping. This type of experience is our strength.
Deutsche Afrika-Linien shipped the very first car to South Africa, a „Benz Velo“ with 1,5 hp. The manufacturer, now named Daimler, continues to have confidence in Deutsche Afrika-Linien. This is only one of numerous examples showing the loyalty of our customers.
Whether one container or a thousand - our agents are always in a position to serve with utmost flexibility the requirements of shippers and receivers whether to Africa or throughout the world. The customer will always have a guarantee that our network of container experts both in Germany as well as in Africa are able to find the right solutions. This situation also applies to John T. Essberger where a fleet of different sized vessels permits shipment of any liquid parcel.
Quality assurance is only one way to prove the safety and reliability of a company.
We have been on the forefront of Quality assurance by inventing security systems long before they became compulsory, thereby minimising the risks for people, goods and the environment.
