Doraleh Multipurpose Port


Inaugurated in May 2017, the Doraleh Multipurpose Port (DMP) was designed to relieve congestion at the former port of Doraleh: in under a year, waiting time to discharge goods was reduced from weeks to days.

The DMP accommodates vessels with up to 100,000 DWT and boasts some of the most modern facilities in Africa:

  • A range of terminals including bulk, break, container and RoRo
  • 1,200 meters of quay line, accommodating 6 berths with a depth of 15.3m
  • 690 hectares of land for industries
  • Average performance of 90 units discharged per hour (RoRo) and 31 containers per hour (LoLo)
  • Direct connection to the Djibouti-Addis Ababa railway
  • The total investment was $590 million. There are plans to expand the DMP further, to reach 4,130 meters of quay line, and 17 berths.
