There are ample storage facilities in the perimeters outside the ports of Abidjan and San Pedro. All the main stevedoring and C&F companies operate large warehousing facilities backed by excellent logistic services. However, spare warehouse capacity can be in very short supply during the cotton, coffee and cocoa export season (November – March). Further up country, good, well-ventilated warehouses are not as plentiful and those that do exist are not always designed for large-scale warehouse operations. The cotton, coffee and cocoa boards may have some spare capacity for rental outside the harvest season. Warehouse facilities are available in Bouake. In Ferkessédougou there is some 5.000 m² of good warehouse capacity available adjacent to the dry port /railway station. Small warehouses can be found in all the smaller townships with surfaces ranging between 200 to 500 m². They are more of the godown type with often only one small access, prohibiting mechanised handling or limiting discharging/loading operations to one truck at a time.

Public Sector Storage

The Direction Nationale des Cantines Scolaires – DNC has limited storage capacity available which can be rented for the storage of relief goods.
The Port Autonome d’Abidjan also has spare warehouse capacity to offer but given the warehouses are all located inside the port perimeter, rental costs can be high. Most warehouses inside the port perimeter are rented on a semi-permanent basis to large stevedoring companies. The Port Autonome de San Pedro – PASP is short on warehousing space and needs all its capacity for its cargo transit operations.

Cold Chain

Except for large-scale reefer chambers in Abidjan, strictly and solely reserved for the export of citrus fruit, there are no large-scale reefer chambers available in Côte d’Ivoire. For small consignments, arrangements can be made with meat or fish traders or with small department stores.
For the storage of medicines and vaccines it is recommended to use the reefer chambers of the Institut National d’Hygiène Public INHP. All the INHP reefer chambers are located close to the local or regional INHP office
