  • Annoucement from Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority

    Ethiopia export cargo to the world gated in Djibouti Ports will be granted Free Terminal Handling Charges for 60 days, from Thursday, April 16th. 

    We hope the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea will be fully open to business with the  world by then.
    We encourage international shipping lines (since export is FOB), inland transporters (railways and road transport companies) and freight forwarders to make a goodwill gesture as well: let us pull on the same direction.

    Export revenues boost the economy and generate more import volume.
