A 16,000 sqm warehouse in Cameroon
A.P. Moller – Maersk has opened a warehousing & distribution facility in Douala, Cameroon. The site will be spread over 16,000 sqm, providing for dry warehousing and distribution.
As a bonded facility, it will also provide for the storage of cargo in the customs clearance process. Maersk will also arrange value-added services at this facility, such as palletisation, packing and kitting. At the beginning of operations, 15% of the site’s electricity will be covered by solar panels installed at the site.
Michel Koffi, managing director, Maersk Southern West Africa: “The Port of Douala plays a crucial role in meeting this demand, as it handles over 70% of imports into Cameroon, serving both the nation's population and its landlocked neighbours within the Central African economic and monetary community.” (mk)
