Today, 6 August 2021, the Port of Walvis Bay is a hive of salty activities as two vessels are currently docked to load salt destined for the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Maria Da Paz is loading 4500 metric tons of bagged salt whereas the Uniscout will load 7000 metric tons of bagged salt which is destined for the Port of Matadi, Congo.
Over the past 4 months Namport recorded a combined total (bagged and bulk salt) of 160,186 metric tons of salt exported via the Port of Walvis Bay to various destinations.
Such volumes are testament to the unending efforts of Namport’s workforce which remains committed to providing best quality port services to all seaborne trade through excellent customer service, sustainable growth and social responsibility, to contribute to the transformation of Namibia as a logistics hub.
An overall increase in the exportation of salt is observed on the graph below in comparison to the same period in 2020.
Another vessel worth noting is the Mediterranean Bridge currently alongside, is expected to depart late Saturday afternoon once an operation of a total of 1674 moves is carried out on the vessel.
