The complex is equipped with warehouses, covered and open storage areas, three railway tracks and high-performance warehousing and cargo handling equipment. Warehousing and Storage Facilities on site Include;

  • 90,000 m2 customs terminal area (75% monolithic concrete surfacing, 25% asphalt)
  • 7,000 m2 warehouse with 12,000 standard pallet capacity and 16t capacity overhead cranes
  • 3,500 TEU container yard and a 22,000 m2 parking yard for freight motor transport

The cargo handling machinery fleet on site included;

  • 30 tonne capacity gantry crane
  • 45 tonne capacity reach stacker for containers and equipment
  • 9 lift trucks with up to 16 tonne capacity and fork lift trucks with capacity of 1.5 to 4.5 tonnes

Due to the coastal location and high risk of corrosion, macro synthetic fibre was used as the primary reinforcement on slab on grade works at the facility.
