Port Performance

The Maputo Port’s access channel has a length of 48 Nautical Miles that enables MSD of 14.40m (with neap tides) or 15.50m (with spring tides).
Maximum LOA vessels depend on the category, but presently due to quay length and design drafts alongside, 300m is the acceptable size.
With the construction of Maputo-Katembe Bridge, limitations in air draft for all vessels is 62.50m.
Waiting time also depends on the type of vessel: 2-4 hours for containers and 12-24 hours for other types. Vessels with cargo for internal consumption, such as rice, wheat, frozen fish, fuel, etc. are given priority, as well as humanitarian cargo.
