Port Overview

There are currently two ports in Gonaives - this document refers to the private port of Gonaives.

The private port is located about 3 km out of the city. The road to the port is in a very bad condition. In the rainy season, it might become impassable which consequently blocks vehicle access to the berth. TEGOSA (Terminal Gonaives S.A.) is owned by the MEVS Group, which also owns Terminal Varreux (TEVASA) in Port-au-Prince.

According to the operator, RoRo vessels are handled, too. Ships which are not equipped with a side ramp but only with stern ramp have to moor with the stern ramp to the berth (Piraeus style).


Port Handling Equipment

The port handling equipment is owned and managed privately. 

There is no functional equipment on the berth; the use of ships gear is strictly recommendable.
