The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) recorded a commendable increase of 19 percent of twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU)’s shipped and 33 percent of TEU’s landed at the Port of Walvis Bay for September 2019 compared to figures for September 2018.

Kavin Harry, Namport’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, confirmed this during the Annual Port Users function held in honour of the entity’s clientele in the port city last week.

He said that 2019 has been a year of tremendous growth for the Port.

“We witnessed the official inauguration of the New Container Terminal. This great investment requires us as an entity, with the cooperation of our clientele, to promote our port to overseas potential investors in order to ensure that Namibia, through the Port, becomes the Port of choice”.

Harry added that Namport as an entity is focused on efficiency, not only through service delivery, but also with its systems and equipment.

“The port authority is in the process of developing a green port policy as the first step towards positioning the Port of Walvis Bay as a flagship port providing sound stewardship and management of the environment.”

More than 100 stakeholders in the maritime fraternity attended the function with the aim of appreciating all those who have made use of the Port’s facilities in 2019.

Awards were conferred to various entities in different categories such as the Top 5 Revenue based Clients, the Top 3 Volume based Clients and the Top 3 SME’s for 2019 at the Port of Walvis Bay.

The top 5 Revenue Based Clients at the Port of Walvis Bay for 2019 were, in no particular order, Maersk Namibia (Pty) Ltd, Woker Freight Services (Pty) Ltd, Trade Ocean Shipping Namibia, Logistics Support Services (Pty) Ltd and Sturrock Grindrod Maritime (Namibia).
