Development of the Bosaso Port Somalia

Hans F. Burcharth

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearch


The first stage of the port of Bosaso will be completed within half a year's time. It offers accomodation for one general cargo/Ro-Ro vessel of 5,000 DWT plus 350 meters of quays for small cargo vessels and fishing boats. Hinterlands for handling of the goods are arranged along the quays. Areas for long term storage of goods and storage of oil are not yet provided.
The first stage represents a significant development in the transport system of Somalia in being the most prosperous port in the northern Somalia because of its position at the terminal of the new north-south national main road and its position right at the main shipping route between Europe and the Far East.
