Douala Congestion

Douala Congestion

Congestion has worsened at the Cameroon port of Douala, with vessel delays now reaching 28 days.
Vessel delays due to the current port congestion in Douala are now reaching 28 days, causing severe disruptions of service and highly increasing operational costs.
Congestion at Douala has continued to build over the past weeks, with operators reporting since late last month that containers on the ground at the port had reached a critical amount and were jeopardising vessels operations; full vessels were waiting at anchorage, with very slow productivity at the port; and an approximate three to four-week delay to berth. This situation was said to be affecting the entire port of Douala, with all shipping lines facing delays.
