Congo Terminal Boosts its Equipment Fleet with 20 New Port Machinery Items


Congo Terminal, a subsidiary of Bolloré Ports, has recently commissioned 10 tractors and 10 trailers worth more than 779 million CFA francs (over €1 million). This is the fourth order for rolling stock since the concession began in 2009.

These latest generation YT193 and RT223 tractors, equipped with mobile terminals and connected to the Navis 4 operating system, will increase operational production rates at the container yard and enhance the terminal’s productivity.

This acquisition is in line with the investment plan put in place by Congo Terminal, which has to date invested more than 250 billion CFA francs (€400 million) to upgrade infrastructure and equipment at the container terminal.

“The investments made in the Port of Pointe-Noire have enabled us to increase our volumes and improve our production rates. We are continuing to invest in new equipment to keep up with the ever- increasing volumes we are now facing,” explains Anthony Samzun, Managing Director of Congo Terminal.
