(Business in Cameroon) - The Douala-Bonaberi port (PAD) reported it welcomed about 3,306 ships overall in 2018, including 1,059 vessels in international or long-distance shipping and 2,247 in local or cabotage shipping.

The port also announced it handled up to 11,616,035 tons of goods with 8,530,122 tons for imports and 3,085,913 for exports. According to the port authority, the strong results mainly follow the implementation of PAD representations in landlocked neighbors Bangui (CAR) and Ndjamena (Chad) which benefit from preferential measures. The port community of Douala called “Port Synthèse”, as part of a future-oriented measure, is currently deploying actions to promote the port of Douala and build customer loyalty in the hinterland.

Concerning the latter aspect, after the first CAR-Chad-Cameroon tripartite forum on transit at the port of Douala held in 2012 in Yaoundé, Cameroon, “Port Synthèse” is planning another forum in 2019 in Bangui. In addition, other promotional actions are carried out jointly by other departments to promote the port of Douala-Bonabéri through fairs, media, international meetings, etc.
