Port of Pointe-Noire

Congo Terminal, Pointe-Noire

The main activity of Congo Terminal is the container-ships and RORO ships handling (loading/unloading).

Since the beginning of the concession in 2009, Bolloré ports launched considerable works of modernization and extension of Congo Terminal. Through this development more than 750 jobs have been created.  

The investment program over 27 years costed 570 Millions of Euro and this has permitted the optimization of the port capacities. Although, new information systems have been deployed and a new quay of 270 meters of Length for 16 meters of depth has been built. The overall existing quays, storage compartments and yards have been renewaled in order to receive additional volumes, view the country and subregion growth.  

The work carried out by BOLLORE Port allow Congo Terminal to become a real transshipment platform within central Africa and the entrance of Congo basin door.

Congo Terminal is part of the 13 containers terminals and 7 ro-ro terminals of Bolloré ports in concession in Africa.
