Lomé’s port is again recognized as the best transshipping port in West and Central Africa

(Togo First) - For the third consecutive year, Lomé’s port (PAL) has been recognized by the African Ports Awards foundation as the best transshipping port in West and Central Africa.

The port received the award at the 40th annual council of the West and Central Africa Port Management Association (AGPAOC), held from June 17 to 20 in Lomé.

Besides this, the infrastructure was recognized as the port with the highest traffic volume increase, in the region.

Lauding the awards, Togo’s port authorities indicated they reflect efforts made to modernize Lomé’s port over the recent years but also added the recognition will drive them to keep pushing to make the PAL a true tool to accelerate regional integration.

“Now more than ever, the State has a major role to play to boost the port’s competitiveness, by launching mechanisms for concession and regulation of maritime and port activities,” declared Fogan Adegnon, Managing Director of PAL.

Besides Lomé’s port, the port of Tema in Ghana was recognized as that with the most productive container terminal in Central and West Africa. Meanwhile, Cotonou’s port in Benin is the best in regards to transit. The awards were given based on data provided in 2016, 2017 and 2018 by Codex, the African ports rating agency. 

The three ports distinguished themselves in a pool of 24 ports, situated in West and Central Africa, along the coast going from Mauritania to Angola.
