Container traffic at the port of Lomé hits a new record

(Togo First) - The port of Lomé just set a new record for its container traffic, passing 1.5 million TEU in 2019. The year before that, the infrastructure had recorded a container traffic of 1.4 million TEU. 

In 2019, the volume of goods that transited through the port was 22.610 million tons, against 22.117 million in 2018. 

The figures were disclosed today, January 28, 2020, by Fogan Adegnan, managing director of the port of Lomé, on the first day of the open houses of the SEGUCE (Société d’Exploitation du Guichet Unique du Commerce Extérieur). 

According to Adegnan, the SEGUCE helped achieve the results mentioned. Indeed, the facility helped cut delays and costs associated with external trade formalities. 

Since 2017, subsequent to multiple reforms, the Port of Lomé became one of the best ports in Africa and the first in West and Central Africa.
