Replenishment at Sea

For vessels that are unable to dock, but are holding off South African ports, Link also offers a replenishment at sea service. This is done through the use of seagoing barges or helicopters, but only when it makes economic sense for the client.

It must be noted that all of the ship chandlery services offered outside of Cape Town are on an “on demand” basis only. This simply means that Link does not have a permanent representative in ports outside of Cape Town Harbour and does not affect the service levels provided. When Link commits, Link delivers!
