Mozambique Shipping Lines Forum

On 20-11-11 the undersigned officially inaugurated the Mozambique Shipping Lines Forum hereunder referred to as MOSLF.

MOSLF has been formed by the local representatives of the principle Container Shipping Lines calling Mozambique ports. MOSLF is similar in form and in its objectives to Associations/forums in many other countries.

The members of MOSLF all share a belief that containerised transportation is a critical enabler for economic development and that at present no association/group exists which focuses on developing the container trades specifically and the maritime sector more generally.

Mozambique will benefit from continued growth of containerised trades and MOSLF members are the principle service providers of containerised transport. MOSLF members share many common interests with Government, donors and private sector stakeholders. By establishing MOSLF the member Lines aim to provide a forum for dialogue on matters of mutual interest including, but not limited to:

  • Promotion of the maritime sector
  • Trade promotion
  • Maritime security
  • Maritime law
  • Maritime environmental and sustainability issues
  • Commercial best practice
  • Cost reduction and efficiencies
  • Current constraints to growth
  • Infrastructural development
  • Legislation

MOSLF aims to provide Container Shipping Lines with a single voice towards stakeholders on critical issues and to provide a single body with whom stakeholders can interact on matters of mutual interest
