No shore based cargo handling equipment is available in the port area, For Lift on/lift-off operations, the ships gear have to be used. Yard handling equipment must be organized by the relevant ship agent, same as longshoremen.
A limited number of containers can be stored in the terminal area; larger volumes should be brought out of the port area. For international shipments, the custom clearance must be done within the limited space of the port.
Outside the port, about 500 m southwest, there are beach-like shores where local products (e.g. charcoal in bags) are loaded on / unloaded from local wooden vessels. All activities are carried out manually/manpower.
