After an international call for bids, the Autonomous Port of Dakar (PAD) awarded Bolloré the operations of the Ro-Ro terminal of the Port of Dakar. The concession contract concerns the logistics operations of "Ro-Ro" ships which are primarily used for the transport of vehicles.
Dakar Terminal has launched an extensive investment plan for bulk-handling equipment adapted to Ro-Ro vessels and for infrastructure work in order to renovate the yard. Bolloré Ports also plans to launch work to deepen the East wharf to be able to simultaneously receive two deep-draft vessels.
The terminal deals with the local market, but also with goods in transit toward the subregion.
Dakar Terminal employs over 150 permanent employees and is an integral part of the Emerging Senegal Plan, launched by the authorities, which is aimed in particular at making the Port of Dakar the leading port of the West African coast.
