Togo-Port of Lomé surges in global ranking despite traffic decline

Togo has reaffirmed its position among the top 100 container ports worldwide. Despite a slight decrease in throughput, from handling 1.9 million TEUs in 2021 to 1.8 million TEUs in 2022 (a 6.5% drop), the port in Lomé has climbed two spots to secure the 94th position in the 2023 edition of the ‘One Hundred Ports’ ranking by Lloyd’s List, marking a new high for this West African port.

According to the Togolese authorities, this achievement is credited to various ongoing efforts, such as modernization, digitalization, equipment upgrades, and streamlining of procedures, all of which have been pursued by the country to maintain its appeal.

The port administration states, “This progress reflects the continuous enhancement of port operations in Lomé while solidifying its standing in this prestigious ranking.”

Furthermore, Togo’s port remains the top-ranked in West Africa and retains its sub-regional leadership position. So far, PAL is surpassed by the Port of Durban in South Africa (79th globally), Port Said in Egypt (48th), and Tanger Med in Morocco (24th).

On a global scale, the top four positions in the ranking remain unchanged, with Shanghai, Singapore, Ningbo-Zhoushan, and Shenzhen continuing to lead the pack.

Les nombreuses tentatives depuis le début des années ´90 pour humaniser le pouvoir d´état et le rendre aux Togolais, n´ont pas pu résister à la terreur militaire, seule légitimité de la dictature du père en fils.
