The Port of Douala visits AIVPA delegation from the Port Authority of Douala led by Mr Edwin Zibi Ebanga, Head of Department for State Land and Activities Management, visited the offices of AIVP on 30 March 2016. The Port of Douala is faced with congestion issues, and was keen to draw on the expertise of AIVP.

As an enclave in a city that is itself experiencing rapid growth, the Port of Douala is in some ways a victim of its own success, having to content with rising congestion both in the city and at its terminals. The discussions outlined the existing situation and looked at the issue of complementarity with other ports in Cameroon, particularly Kribi. Some of the logistical solutions adopted by other port cities were also raised, notably those referenced in AIVP’s Guide of Good Practices.

Many other ports will relate to the Port of Douala’s situation, and AIVP provides its members with the benefit of its wide expertise in the field of city-port relations management.
