Namibia to export grapes directly to EU from Port of Lüderitz
Grape growers were given new hope of exporting their produce through the Port of Lüderitz in the near future.
The proposition was tabled by NileDutch's commercial director Leo Huisman during a tablegrape pre-harvest season meeting at Aussenkehr, as he outlined that NileDutch can be the solution to using the Lüderitz port.
Namibian grapes are currently exported to the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands via Cape Town in South Africa, with the produce moved from Namibia to South Africa by truck.
Huisman indicated that NileDutch was ready to provide a reliable and quality service that will ensure the grapes are no longer transported to South Africa before shipment, but shipped to Europe straight from Namibia through Lüderitz Port.
"We promise to offer direct Lüderitz to Europe services that are reliable and personalised," he told the grape growers at the meeting. Details of the costs were however not discussed, but many grape growers said the idea is good if the price is right.
