Evergreen Shipping announced on September 13 that its direct route to Mombasa in East Africa, AEF, will make its maiden voyage from Qingdao on October 10.


According to Evergreen Marine, the AEF route has five major advantages:

Second, we put 2 self-owned ships into operation with sufficient space.

Third, the destination port box is flexible, allowing customers to transship to South Sudan,Uganda, Rwanda, Congo (DRC), Burundi, Tanzania and other countries.

Fourth, the first-leg ship carries cargo from Dar es Salaam in East Africa and transfers to the ASEA route in Singapore, which is convenient and fast.

Fifth, it can provide a variety of services such as import and export combined transportation and shipment to third places.

It is understood that the Port of Mombasa is located in the middle of the east coast of Africa. It is the largest port in East Africa and the second largest port in Africa. It is also a strategic port for Kenya’s foreign trade. It has 21 berths of various types and above 10,000 tons, and the port draft is more than 9.45 meters. Navigation is available 24 hours a day.

In February 2014, Kenya established the country's first free trade zone in Mombasa to strengthen and enhance intra-regional trade between the East, Central and Southern Africa regions.

In 2016, Kenya and Uganda jointly released the "Northern Economic Corridor Master Plan", starting from the port of Mombasa in the east and connecting Uganda, Burundi, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo through infrastructure such as roads, railways, waterways, and pipelines. and other countries to create conditions for East Africa’s economic development.

Countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan, Uganda, Burundi, and Rwanda rely on the Port of Mombasa for most of their exports due to lack of access to the sea. In addition, materials from northeastern Tanzania, Somalia and other countries and regions often enter and exit through the Port of Mombasa.
