France´s CMA CGM is developing a new terminal at Lobito in Angola.
The container line said it had joined forces with Multiparques Group to have the facility operational this year.
Lobito is the country’s second port and the shipowner views it as a strategic entry point in West Africa.
Alexis Michel, CMA CGM group logistics and reefer senior vice president, said: “This not only allows Benguela and Huambo – two major Angola cities - service, but also thanks to the new railroad renovation, to link the city to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia copper-belt mining region to the sea.
“Those different elements promise the port of Lobito to a great intermodal future”.
