33% Growth: Takoradi among the fastest-growing ports globally

Seaborne cargo at the Port of Takoradi grew 33% in 2017 to 8 million tons, making Takoradi one of the world’s fastest-growing ports, ahead of Barcelona, Europe’s fastest-growing port. Takoradi also remains Ghana’s main export port, handling over 70% of Ghana’s exports, including manganese, bauxite, timber, cocoa, rubber, coconut, palm & kennel shell. Transit trade more than doubled last year with Ghana’s neighbors increasingly leveraging Takoradi’s upgraded  facilities. Growth was strong across categories, including bulk, containers, liquid bulk and general cargo. With major expansion works underway, Takoradi’s growth is poised to continue.

For businesses looking to enter Ghana, the WestPark in Takoradi is building modern factories, warehouses, offices, residential and retail spaces and offers hands-on business development support. With competitive costs of production, proximity to abundant natural resources and a strategic location, we’re seeking to raise the standards for businesses to operate, manufacture and distribute goods in West Africa.
