(Business in Cameroon) - Oil products transporter Continental Oil Transportation Operating Citernes (COTOC) and its partner Ikram Logistics recently welcomed ten (10) tank cars into their rolling stock in Cameroon. The cars were received on May 15, 2021, at the port of Douala, by railway operator CAMRAIL. This delivery is the last of an order of 42 tank cars the supplier started delivering in June 2020.

COTOC and Ikram Logistics “called on CAMRAIL’s expertise in the cars’ acquisition process. Their aim in doing so was to ensure that the materials put into circulation on the local railway network can allow the secured transportation of oil products,” CAMRAIL explains.  

The new equipment will boost the number of tank cars available to transport oil products from Cameroon Company of Petroleum Depots’ (SCDP) container tanks in Douala, to the company’s storage plants in the northern and southern regions (Belabo, Ngaoundéré, etc…).
