APM Terminals is ready to commence its expansion of a port on the Ivory Coast by building another container terminal.
The Maersk group's port company and French logistics company Bolloré have co-signed a contract with a Chinese engineering company, which will be in charge of building the Côte d'Ivoire Terminal (CIT) in the port in Abidjan.
Abidjan already has a container terminal, but the port will now be expanded with another terminal.
The project will cost EUR 400 million and is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. The new terminal will expand the port's capacity by 1.2 million teu and will create 400 jobs once it is fully operational.
