Cargo Talk - - Interview -

The event was at­tended by Maersk Line and Saf­ma­rine ex­ec­u­tives from all over Africa, and from HQ; in­clud­ing the global CEO of Saf­ma­rine, David Wil­liams. Maersk Line and Saf­ma­rine auc­tioned the con­tainer freight on their trade routes to West, East and South Africa dur­ing their re­cent cus­tomer event ’Africa Nite’, held in Mum­bai. ’Africa Nite’ is a tes­ta­ment of the com­pany’s fo­cused ef­forts to en­able seam­less trade be­tween the two economies. This opens up new op­por­tu­ni­ties for In­dian busi­nesses to reach out to newer African mar­kets, a ma­jor boost to en­hance the trade ties be­tween the In­dian Sub con­ti­nent and Africa. The pro­ceeds amount­ing to US $13000 from the auc­tion went to World Vi­sion In­dia which sup­port Maersk’s Healthy High­way Project and Fish­er­man Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Project. Steve Felder, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Maersk Line In­dia, said, “I would like to ex­tend our sin­cere grat­i­tude to all our part­ners, who showed their sup­port. We will con­tinue our com­mit­ment to em­power lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties in the re­gion and also serve our cus­tomers to ac­cess the African mar­kets in an ef­fi­cient, en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly and re­li­able way.” World Vi­sion In­dia, was rep­re­sented by Ron­ald John – Head, Key Ac­counts and Gam­liel She­rio- Se­nior Man­ager, My City Ini­tia­tive, Mum­bai, who re­ceived the cheques dur­ing the event.
