Gabon : Owendo Container Terminal handles a record number of containers in connection with the visit of the “Turquoise”

(BOLLORE ) - On 14 December 2020, the container terminal at the port of Owendo in Gabon set an all-time record by unloading and loading 3,744 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) containers from and onto the container ship “Turquoise”.

The Owendo Container Terminal (OCT) teams thus handled the largest volume of containers in one port of call to date, with 46% of the containers intended for export.

This 259-metre-long container ship, owned by CMA-CGM, has given OCT the opportunity to highlight the value of the investments that have been made, the professionalism of its teams and the synergies within Owendo’s port community.

"This achievement is the result of the dedication and close collaboration between the various Owendo Container Terminal operational teams. It was made possible by the indispensable cooperation of all the port stakeholders: the Office des ports et rades du Gabon (OPRAG port authority), customs, freight agents, transporters, Scan Gabon, etc.). This feat is a testament to Owendo Container Terminal's ability to meet the needs of the Gabonese people and to support the country’s economic recovery,” says Laurent GOUTARD, OCT’s Managing Director.
