Shiping Lines


2 shipping companies historically use the Longoni terminal, CMA-CGM which represents about 80% of the volumes and MSC which represents about 20% of the volumes


NOURA EXPRESS (main liner)

To reinforce their product reliability and competitiveness on the trade Middle East and East Asia to East Africa and Indian Ocean, CMA CGM presents the latest service improvement on the weekly dedicated product NOURA EXPRESS service effective 1st week of September 2020.

Strengths of the new set up

  • Reliable and weekly direct service from Middle East and East Asia to East Africa and Indian Ocean
  • Service fully operated by CMA CGM Group with 6 vessels of 2,500 TEU nominal capacity
  • Port coverage Colombo – Jebel Ali – Mogadishu – Longoni – Beira (1/2) – Nacala (1/2) – Port Victoria – Colombo
  • New direct service and weekly frequency from Jebel Ali to Mogadishu in 5 days
  • Competitive transit time to Mayotte 11 days, Mozambique 15 days and Seychelles 24 days from UAE
  • Reefer cargo from Seychelles benefits of excellent 5 days transit time to Colombo


CMA-CGMA operates 5 feeder services in the Indian Ocean, 4 of which tranship at Longoni

A new service will be complementary to our current services IOFEED 1 and IOFEED 2, which rotation will remain unchanged. It will benefit from the presence of two CMA CGM terminals in the rotation, Pointe des Galets and Longoni, offering smooth transshipment, and strengthening the link between the Indian Ocean and our Worldwide services.

  • From Pointe des Galets, Tamatave will be reached in 1 day and Longoni in 4 days.
  • From Longoni, Port Louis and Pointe des Galets will be reached in 3 days.


MSC serves Longoni about twice a month, from Port Louis which is its transhipment port.


Longoni regularly receives conventional ships loaded with various equipment, cement and wood, as well as military ships and cruise ships.
