Togo: Dry port of Adétikopé now operational

(Togo First) - Operations at the dry port of the Adetikopé industrial platform (PIA) began on January 16, 2022. According to the maritime economy ministry which revealed the news, the port which spans 20 ha can host 12,500 containers and serve as a relay-point for containers, pending their delivery to landlocked countries.

The infrastructure should help free space at Lomé’s main port. It will be used for the handling and transshipment of goods that are coming from or being sent to landlocked nations in the region.

"The dry port of Adétikopé is OPERATIONAL today! CMA CGM will deliver its unloaded containers on-site pending their transfer to hinterland countries. Togo is on the way to becoming a leading logistics hub in the sub-region," said the ministry.

By commissioning the new platform, Togo aims to strengthen its position, in line with its goal of becoming a first-class logistics hub at the regional level.
