Drawing on more than fifteen years of experience in the operation of the RMS St Helena and the St Helena Line shipping service, AW Ship Management has signed an agreement with St Helena Government to provide a marine cargo service to St Helena which will commence in 2018. The service will connect St Helena with Cape Town directly and will also call into Ascension Island four times per year. The first sailing will depart Cape Town on the 21st February 2018 with a UK transhipment cargo receiving deadline of 11th January 2018.
A draft schedule has beeen published for the new service and has been agreed with St Helena Government.
Due to AWSM’s involvement with the RMS St Helena, the infrastructure for cargo bookings and management already exists. Therefore, our agents on St Helena (Solomon & Co) and Cape Town (RNC) are ready to assist as always.
