Tema’s terminal three open for business

At Tema Port, Ghana, the first phase of the newly built terminal three has opened for commercial shipping activities.


The Meridian Port Services (MPS) container terminal is a joint venture between Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GHPA), Bolloré Transport & Logistics and APM Terminals.

The project included the construction of a 3.5 km-long breakwater, a 16 m-deep access channel and sophisticated port handling equipment. It was developed at an estimated cost of USD1.5 billion. Two berths have been cleared for operation, with a second two scheduled to come online in 2020.
