DAL Deutsche Afrika-Linien / John T. Essberger Group of Companies dates back to the year 1924 when the Naval Commander John Theodor Essberger established himself as a tanker ship owner in Hamburg. Today the group consists of the DAL Deutsche Afrika-Linien operating traditional liner services to Southern Africa, North Africa, the Canary Islands, East Africa and the Islands of the Indian Ocean, and John T. Essberger with its chemical tanker, dry cargo and ship management divisions.
Liner services are much about experience and connections particularly if you are talking about Africa. DAL Deutsche Afrika-Linien can reflect back on a long history in the trade. Shippers and passengers alike soon acknowledged the reliability, punctuality and speed of the liner services to Africa. These virtues are even more important today. With the introduction of containerized shipping the demand for just-in-time services became even more important. For more than 40 years DAL and its partners have been serving Southern Africa on a 7-day-named-day schedule.
Our customers can rely on the African knowledge we have gained in the past with this Continent. For easy access we offer a network of agents throughout Europe, Africa and the Indian Ocean. In Germany and South Africa DAL are represented by its own agencies. DAL and its agents offer the latest IT-technology including container tracking and tracing systems via the internet. With personal advice over the phone or a visit to the customer, DAL’s staff are able to offer a service that has become uncommon in times dominated by computers. We never forget that we deal with human beings.
