Conakry Terminal, a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports and operator of the container terminal at the Port of Conakry, officially commissioned the Kagbelen inland container depot located in the municipality of Dubréka, 35 km from the Guinean capital.
Covering a surface area of 30 hectares, the Kagbelen inland container depot has a specially laid out 5-hectare area with a storage capacity of 2,000 vehicles. As a priority, it stores vehicles transiting to Mali, as well as vehicles not delivered after parking for ten days at the port terminal premises.
Traoré Tahirou Barry, chief executive officer, Conakry Terminal, commented: “The Kagbelen inland container depot was developed with a view to optimising the management of the storage spaces of the container terminal and to accelerate vehicle delivery services.
“Supplementing the new yard gantries recently commissioned by Conakry Terminal, the new inland container depot will boost the performance and competitiveness of the autonomous Port of Conakry.”
