Abidjan Terminal reached a new productivity record in May 2018 with 47,000 TEUs handled

Abidjan (Côte d'Ivoire). 08 June 2018

Abidjan Terminal, a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports, achieved a record level in May by handling 47,000 TEUs, or more than 661,000 tonnes of goods thus achieving the best performance in its entire history.

Anticipating the productivity needs created by the country’s growth, Bolloré Ports has undertaken a programme to modernize the container terminal at Abidjan since 2004. Bolloré Ports, which has a workforce of nearly 500 on site, is continuously modernizing Abidjan’s container terminal in order to increase the yard’s container storage capacity.

It has recently made several investments including the acquisition of 2 STS and 4 RTG gantries. A new access was also built to process the export trucks. Finally, the capacities of the refrigerated containers have been increased and are now coupled with a brand new automated temperature monitoring system.
