The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) in collaboration with MAERSK, recently joined their resources and donated six (6), Forty (40) foot refrigerated containers to the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS).
The need comes about as the country’s health system is placed under immense pressure during the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The containers will be placed at the following areas in Namibia transported by Transnamib:

  • Windhoek (2 )
  • Otjiwarongo (1 )
  • Rehoboth (1 )
  • Gobabis (1 )
  • Onandjokwe (1 )

The trio hopes this gesture will in some way ease the current burden experienced by the Ministry. The containers comes with a tag price of N$ 1 million and we commiserate with the current health emergency in our country.

Namport has contributed towards several initiatives over the past twelve (12) months, donating over N$ 1.5 million towards medical facilities, equipment and protective gear to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
As an entity, we realize that this enemy is not only the responsibility of government alone, but that we as a nation can only win this war if we all collectively join our efforts and resources in this fight against COVID-19.


We continue to praise our brave health workers who, on a daily basis continue fighting in the front lines to save the lives of all Namibians.
Namport remains committed to upholding its values of being committed, connected and caring.
