Make Pointe-Noire the deepwater port of reference of Central Africa, the challenge raised by Congo terminal. This objective implies an unprecedented openness to the Congo Basin and its main corridors especially through the railway.
Thus, Congo Terminal is also an open network of Brazzaville, capital of Congo, Kinshasa and Matadi in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Bangui, capital of the Republic of Central Africa.


Congo Terminal and Railway

On 16 February 2000, after the decision to split-dissolution of the Agency Transcongolaise Communications (ATC), three sisters entities are emerging:

  • the Autonomous Port of Pointe-Noire (PAPN)
  • the Autonomous Port of Brazzaville and Secondary Ports (PABPS)
  • Congo Ocean Railway

Yet the history of the latter dates back to January 6, 1921. It was in effect on that date that was given, in Brazzaville, the first sod of this project, which ended July 10, 1934 with the inauguration of the Way of Congolese iron. A real technical feat of the time with 61 retaining walls, 12 tunnels, 71 masonry trenches, culverts 618 and 162 bridges, it was created to address a business problem: make the production of the sub region accessible to the world via the deepwater port of Pointe-Noire. For example, in 1962, it serves to route to the port of Pointe-Noire Gabonese manganese.

Since the early 2000s, the CFCO has been unprecedented modernization measures. It is therefore in full knowledge of its experience and its history Congo Terminal placing on the railway for the development of its network.
Already has 6 cars with a capacity of 18 TEU and 18 TEU's go's return, Congo Terminal plans eventually to own thirty. To maximize the productivity of its flow in this area, the creation of a dedicated unit of the CFCO, a logistics area starting in Pointe-Noire and a logistics zone in Brazzaville receipt are part of medium-term projects Congo Terminal.
