The 3rd Largest Port In Africa Is Getting A New Container Terminal. by EXIMA: 11:04am On Feb 01
In their constant search for efficiency and reduction in ship handling times, ports around the world are increasing their reception and processing capacities by acquiring ever more efficient equipment. African ports are not to be outdone, as evidenced by the inauguration of the new facilities of the Autonomous Port of Abidjan.

The Port of Abidjan, hub of sub-regional maritime transport

Located in West Africa on the shores of the Gulf of Guinea, Côte d'Ivoire is the gateway to the landlocked countries of West Africa. In 2019, the port of Abidjan handled more than 25 million tons of goods. It also generates 76% of customs revenue in Côte d'Ivoire. The quality of the services provided to ships has enabled the port of Abidjan to be the first African port to be ISO 9001: 2015 certified. It is also ISO 14001: 2015 certified for its commitment to sustainable management of the environment. With its 140,000 m2 of warehouses and hangars, its 34 berths and its modern equipment, it is the largest port in West Africa and the 3rd largest port in Africa.

Increase the accommodation capacity for very large vessels

"Enable the port of Abidjan to accommodate the largest container ships in order to increase its container handling capacity", that is the objective which led the general management of the Port of Abidjan to launch in October 2015, the construction of a second container terminal (TC2) at the port of Abidjan. On November 02, 2022, Côte d'Ivoire Terminal, the company in charge of operating the new terminal, effectively started the activities of the said container terminal, with the reception of the CMA CGM ROSSINI vessel, with a length of 267 m, a width of 40 m, for a capacity of 5770 TEU Containers. The launch of the activities of the second terminal comes after the test stops successfully carried out in mid-October 2022.
Equipped with new ultra-modern equipment, the largest currently available in Africa and which meet environmental standards, the new facilities will thus make it possible to improve the productivity of the port of Abidjan, to increase delivery rates, to reduce delays processing of goods and contribute to further boosting trade in West Africa
