Four brand new park gantries for the port of Cotonou



The Port of Cotonou, a significant maritime gateway in West Africa, has recently seen a significant upgrade in its infrastructure. Benin Terminal, operator of the container terminal of the Port of Cotonou, received four brand new park gantries (Rubber Tyre Gantry).

These new gantries are more imposing than the previous ones and will optimize storage capacities and reduce processing times for loading and unloading containers at the terminal. The total cost of this new equipment was 6.650 billion CFA francs (approximately 10 million euros).

The acquisition of these four new RTG cranes is part of a major investment program which will allow Benin Terminal to provide the port of Cotonou, by the end of 2024, with a new Quay gantry (STS) and in 2026, 6 new RTGs and 3 quay gantries (STS).


This investment is expected to significantly impact the operational efficiency of the terminal, now bringing to 16 units the number of park gantries operating at Benin Terminal. The goal is to make Benin Terminal a true regional logistics hub of growth for Niger, Mali, Burkina-Faso, and Nigeria.

The General Director of Bénin Terminal, Fabrice TURE, declared that they are committed to continuing their investment program and working for the modernization and development of port activities at the Port of Cotonou. This is indeed a significant step towards enhancing the efficiency and capacity of the Port of Cotonou.
