International Shipping To Africa

Composed of 54 countries, Africa is bounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Atlantic to the west, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean to the east, and the mingling waters of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans to the south. With so many water bodies surrounding it, Africa is a hub of ocean trade. But with such an expansive continent comes many rules and regulations regarding shipping trade. Viamar can help navigate those waters.
