Senegal - Dakar


DP World Dakar is located at the junction of three key trade lanes: North America-Africa, Europe-Africa and Europe-South America.

The port offers year round direct access with no tidal restrictions, and 24/7 ship and yard operations. As such the facility is favoured first-port of call for vessels southbound from Europe. Good road network connections offer swift transit times for cargo bound for Guinea-Bissau, Mauritania, and Gambia. With its onsite rail terminal, Dakar Port is the historic gateway to Bamako, Mali.

DP World Dakar is the only port in the region offering window berthing, which, in combination with high productivity, modern and reliable equipment and skilled staff, has virtually eliminated waiting time at anchorage and reduced truck turnaround time to less than 20 min.
