Port Overview

The Berbera Port of Berbera is on the Northern coast of Somalia and is located on the South Coast of the Gulf of Aden, approximately 250Km East of Djibouti. It is strategically positioned for goods in transit to Ethiopia, Yemen, Somalia and Other parts of the Horn of Africa. . The Port is owned and operated by the Somaliland authorities. In addition to an oil terminal the facilities can accommodate containers, general cargo, and bulk cargo.

The port foundation is tracked traced back more than a hundred years, and the current place was , a linear wharf of 300 meters, was established in 1968 by Soviet Union and expanded to a 350 meters linear wharf 300 meters. Then was expanded by the in 1984 by United States of America to 350 meters linear wharf. Currently, the port facilities encompass more than 600 meters with terminals for container, for general cargo, office buildings and other properties.

DP world has signed an agreement with the government of Somaliland to co- invest and manage the port for 30 years. DP World took the concession of the port on March 2017.   The plan is to expand the port Quayside 400 meters and 250,000 square meter yard extension, the project is expected to commence in 2018. The government of Ethiopia is in the process of acquiring 19 % shareholding of the port.  The port of Berbera which is located 973 east of Addis Ababa, is the second nearest port to serve the growing volume of Ethiopian cargo, which is congesting Djibouti, due to huge imports of humanitarian cargo, fertilizer and other shipments. At present, 97 % of Ethiopian import-export cargo is transported via the port of Djibouti and only 2 % goes through the port of Berbera and 1% through Port Sudan.

In 2017, 131,775 MT cargo was transported by the Berbera port to Ethiopia. The overall discharge performance of the port was for containers 8 moves/hour and WFP Break Bulk 150 tons/hours.

. Since then the port has developed numerous properties as well as constructions. 

The Port's task hasn’t changed over the years but its scope of services has expanded considerably. The port contributed significantly in the development of the Somaliland community.

Port Performance

Entry into the harbour is straightforward except during the strong windy conditions that occur frequently during both the NE and SW monsoon periods. These winds tend to blow beam-on to vessels in the approach channel and at the commercial quays. With the lack of tug power to assist in maneuvering, ship safety is not optimal. In addition, a lack of effective navigation aids limits vessel entry and departure operations to daylight hours, from 6 am to 6 pm. The situation is occasionally aggravated by dust storms generated by strong winds that impair visibility.

Usual Wind Direction

  • At approximately 20 knots southward 220 degrees during the Morning hours and northward from 330 degrees at 13 Knots during the evening hours.

  • Strong wind period from June to September.

Water level

  • High tide and low tide fluctuates between 0.7 - 2.5m.

    • Doubling the current container handling from six to twelve moves per hour is well within the realm of possibility. Acquisition of more materials handling equipment in conjunction with more efficient procedures could drastically improve vessel turn around and reduce time in port. This opens up the port for increased vessel traffic and reduces shipping costs to Berbera.
    • The main port equipment and facilities include the Mayara and Tamara lighthouses at the entry of the port.
    • Cargo handling equipment (10 x mobile cranes (70 mt), 2 x forklifts of 32 mt).
    • Storage warehouses: Total area 5,760 m² with storage capacity up to 120,000 mt, open storage (64,000 m²) is available plus a container storage yard.
    • In 2014 Berbera Port Authority initiated a major plan to expand the dry port by compacting an area of 700 m x 300 m and placing asphalt in which will be handled for containers as an additional container terminal. The construction is still ongoing and so far the authority has managed to accomplish 300 m x 100 m out of the planned development. The plan is to complete the new terminal by the end of July 2016.
    • The port currently only accommodates 35,000 tons

    • The expansion of the Port of Berbera could cost more than $65 million. Ali Omar Mohamed, in charge of the Port of Berbera, recently stated that he imagines the port becoming 20 meters (22 yards) deep compared to its current 11.5 to 12 meters depth. At 20 meters, the port could accommodate the world’s largest container ship, weighing 300,000 tons. The expansion of the port is very much a documented expectation for the future of Somaliland (see the National Development Plan 2012-2016), but attracting private investors into the port remains an ongoing process.

    The increased usage of containers has contributed to the improvement of Berbera Port efficiency in vessel turnaround and handling. There is a consistent positive trend in the number of containers handled: in 2012 the port handled 21,538 containers, an improvement of 22% from 2009. Maersk and PIL Lines signed an agreement with Port Authorities to operate a regular service to the Port of Berbera and are represented in Berbera and the capital Hargeisa.
