International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI)’s Camerronian subsidiary, Kribi Multipurpose Terminal (KMT), has started commercial operations at the Port of Kribi in Central Africa.
Located within the Port of Kribi, KMT is purposely built to handle multipurpose shipping line services including roro, project and heavy lift cargo, forestry products, dry bulk and other general cargoes, and to offer support services to the oil and gas industry.
Equipped with state-of-the-art handling equipment, KMT is capable of accommodating the largest vessels plying the waters today. The concession contract has a duration of 25 years until 2045.
Kathy Magne, KMT chief executive officer, commented: “We are excited to kick off our operation in Cameroon, and we look forward to working closely with the EXIM trade, promoting and enhancing smooth cargo movements.”
The Port of Kribi is located on the Atlantic coast and is strategically positioned in the centre of the Gulf of Guinea, spearheading the logistics corridor into Cameroon, Chad, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea and as far as Gavon and Congo.
