(Business in Cameroon) - In 12 months of activity on the container terminal of the deep-water port of Kribi, commissioned in March 2018, the Kribi Conteneurs Terminal KCT, which manages the infrastructure, handled 164,941 twenty-foot Container Equivalent Units (TEUs) both for import-export and transshipments.

We are very proud of our journey and the performances achieved in one year. Our growth strategy is mainly based on compliance with the specifications contained in the concession contract, namely the operation of perimeter 1.2, equipment maintenance, staff recruitment and the installation of our short-term services. It is planned in the medium term, the relocation to perimeter 2 of 675 meters of dam and 715 meters of quay, with the purchase of equipment from perimeter 1.2 and the construction of buildings. Our strategy in the long term is to become a reference port in the sub-region in terms of quality of service, cost policy with the possibility of carrying out off-shore operations,” said KCT’s Deputy MD Philémon Mendo.

In addition to operation performances, KCT also claims it has paid XAF400 million in taxes and duties to tax administration over the period.
