Port of San Pedro has become one of the most important economic infrastructures built in Côte d’Ivoire since the country became independent. Port of San Pedro is now the N° 2 port in Côte d’Ivoire. It was built with the aim of reducing regional disparities by creating a center for the development of the south-western region of Côte d’Ivoire, while also acting as a port of transit for neighbouring countries (Mali, the forest region of Guinea, and eastern Liberia).
Now, Port of San Pedro aims to become a point of excellence between the terminals of the West Africa in terms of productivity, quality, workers health, safety, security and environment care.
