PIA Receives New Equipment for its Dry Port

(Togo First) - The Adétikopé industrial platform (PIA) received, for its dry port, cutting-edge handling equipment. The news was disclosed by Arise Group which manages the infrastructure. 

The equipment includes Reachstakers, empty container handlers, Terbergs, and trailers. These will serve to move containers from one place to another.

The dry port or inland container depot was inaugurated on August 13, 2013. It occupies 20 ha out of the 400 ha the PIA spans and can receive 12,500 containers.

The port will help free space at the Autonomous Port of Lomé. Also, the infrastructure will serve as a handling and transhipping platform for goods that come and go at the port of Lomé.

The PIA, let’s recall, is the fruit of a partnership between Arise IIP and the Togolese Republic. The platform, which cost CFA130 billion, was inaugurated on June 6, 2021, by President Faure Gnassingbé.
