DJIBOUTI been recognised as the top container port in Africa and 61st globally by the World Bank and IHS Markit's latest global Container Port Performance Index.

According to the Index, Djibouti and Mombasa ports are the most technically efficient in eastern and southern Africa, based on three main variables: the sum of the length of all container and multipurpose berths in the port, the total container terminal area of the port, and the combined capacity of the cranes.



Previous reports have also highlighted that Djibouti is one of only two African countries where ships spend a median time of less than one day in its ports, making it among the most efficient in the world.



The report scores ports against different metrics, making the efficiency ranking comparable around the globe by assessing and standardising for different ship sizes and container moves per call.



Djibouti's container terminal, Societe de Gestion du Terminal a conteneurs de Doraleh (SGTD), is a key transshipment hub for the east African region. It is fully connected to the Addis Ababa-Djibouti railway, with five trains a day now stopping at the port and has a throughput capacity of 1.6 million TEU.



Djibouti's US$15 billion investment plan to develop its ports and infrastructure has led to the country making consistent improvements in global rankings on ports and logistics performance. Djibouti also jumped 44 places in the World Bank's latest Logistics Performance Index in 2018.
