(Business in Cameroon) - Danish shipowner Maersk controls 40% of the maritime freight in and out of Cameroon. This was revealed by Mohamed Diop, director of Bolloré group in the Gulf of Guinea, during a press conference on September 3, 2019, in Douala. This demonstrates the importance of this world leader in Cameroon’s exchanges with the world.

It manages many port terminals in Africa and, is also a shareholder (along with Bolloré group) of Douala International Terminal (DIT), concessionaire of Douala port’s container terminal since 2005.

In September 2019, Maersk boosted its contribution to maritime transport in Cameroon by performing stopovers at Kribi deepwater port, commissioned in South Cameroon in March 2018.
