Mer Union Line
Mer Union Line
The regular liner service “Mer Union” originated from a longtime working relationship in between a forwarding company, Reunion based importers, and stevedores, both in Antwerp and in Réunion.
“Mer Union” is specialized in the overseas transport of various cargoes from Europe to the Indian Ocean. The shipping line offers a regular service from the port of Antwerp to both the islands of Réunion, Mayotte, and Madagascar.
The goal of Mer Union is to assure a regular supply to these islands of general cargoes and base commodities, required for construction works, or for any other project .
“Mer Union” is based in Antwerp, with representatives in France (Bordeaux), Réunion (Port Réunion), Mauritius (Port Louis), Mayotte (Longoni) and Madagascar (Antananarivo).Download schedule here
The shipping line offers a regular – breakbulk – sailing from the port of Antwerp to the island of Réunion. The island of Mauritius is called on in case of sufficient inducement. Our service is based on multi-purpose vessels, offering a departure from Antwerp every 5 weeks with a transit time of approximately 30 days.
Flexibility is a major asset of “Mer Union”. Any other destination en route can be considered, this in case of sufficient inducement, either via the Suez Canal, either via the Cape of Good Hope. “Mer Union” can therefore be a valid alternative for cargos destined to the East or Westcoast of Africa, as well as for the other Mascarene Islands.
