MPS Terminal 3, “the backbone of Africa’s connectivity with South America”

( BOLLORE ) - Terminal 3 of MPS (Meridian Port Services Limited) in Ghana is the backbone of the maritime service between Africa and South America. The container terminal at the port of Tema enables the CMA CGM and MSC ship owners to connect Africa with the South American market.

MSC benefits from a berthing window on the MPS docks for its connections between Africa and South America. Meanwhile, CMA CGM recently launched the "SAMWAF" (South America - West Africa) service that makes the port of Tema a leading hub for containers coming from or going to Ghana and countries in the sub-region.

These services bring Ghana greater openness to the international market and stand as a significant advantage for Ghanaian economic operators, which will now benefit from shorter transport times at advantageous rates.

MPS has thus bolstered its attractiveness through its geographical position at the “centre of the world”, the continuous improvement of its infrastructures and superstructures, the standards of its services, and the technologies implemented for economic players. Shipping companies benefit from the highest productivity levels thanks to real-time electronic data interchange, backed by an excellent computerised terminal management system.

With this service to South America and Ghana by two leading global shipping companies, MPS will continue to be a strategic partner for the development of trade and industry, offering the various markets better connectivity in the region and beyond. We hope that this unique opportunity with CMA CGM and MSC will enhance the business activities of trade and industry players,” said Mohamed Samara, Managing Director of MPS.
