Berbera Port now operates Night & Day handling large container ship

Recommended Posts

At least some are getting somewhere. Soon we will see containers from Somaliland all over Kililka.

Please keep some unclaimed empties for us.

Some of the markings on the containers are from large shipping companies as per the markings. Most likely sorting based on different ports sequence.

Previously if you wanted to ship something i.e. your car to Berbera. You had to ship it to Djibouti or Dubai first and then from there, it would be transferred to Berbera. But now, I can just arrange the car to be loaded right from my house into a container and it will arrive in 4-6 weeks in Berbera.

Life is not fair.

Do you realize you are already benefiting from the Iran-US/Arab fracas?

Next to Djibouti Berebra will be the only port capable to deal with todays normal shipping other than Port Sudan and Mombassa which are far away from the action.

Since UAE will not use Djibouti, Berbera is the only port.

I hate to wish any ill on anyone, but if the Persian Gulf closes for any length of time..Berbera will be the empire overnight. Poor Yemen taken out of the game.

Give military bases now to Russia, America, Saudia, Britania, Japan...and will have peace as well.

If they are more than one and especially don't like each other, then you don't loose respect or sovereignty.

Aw guuriyo Maamulka Somaliland. There is nothing better to see a Somali region making progress. Hopefully, Somaliland will not limit itself to its internal market and makes Somalis across the region utilize the facilities.

Indeed. That is the plan, for Berbera to resume its role as regional hub for trade and commerce which it lost to Djibouti after 1960s disastrous failed union with Ex-Italian Somalia. 

There are plans to use Air Cargo to deliver goods using the newly refurbished Berbera Airport to the landlocked states of South Sudan and Uganda, at more competitive rates than Kenya is offering.

Container carrying trucks from Berbera Port await at Puntland's Buuro Wadal checkpoint. These trucks are tax exempted in Somaliland as the goods are destined in neighbouring Somalia/Puntland. Only standard handling and forwarding fees were paid.
