Togo: PIA’s Dry Port to Resume Operations Very Soon

(Togo First) - The dry port of the Plateforme Industrielle d'Adétikopé (PIA) should resume operations in a few days. Edem Tengue, Togo’s Minister of Maritime Economy, disclosed the news via X on June 12. 

The resumption aims to redynamize trade between Togo and Niger. It follows a meeting to evaluate activities at the Port of Lomé, particularly those related to the transit of goods bound for Niger.

Activities at the dry port were paused in March 2024, and this had a significant impact on the transit of goods to Niger. 

As operations are set to resume soon, several shipping giants said they want to join the platform. These include Swiss-Italian MSC, Denmark's MAERSK, France's CMA CGM, Singapore's PIL, and Japan's ONE.

The dry port was established by a presidential decree issued in May 2021. The Adétikopé Industrial Platform (PIA), a PPP between the government and ARISE, has been a major hub for the region, serving as a platform for trade with landlocked countries.
