    DP World Berbera has achieved another milestone for Somaliland, commissioning the first Mobile Harbour Cranes,MHCs, at the Port of Berbera this month. The introduction of the MHCs is a landmark development by DP World Berbera, as the port will for the first time offer shoreside crane support, substantially improving vessel operations.

    The USD12 million investment on the three new cranes will double productivity at the port, significantly reducing vessel turn-around time and stabilising operations during monsoon season as well as providing safer and more secure conditions at the port.

    Suhail Al Banna Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of DP World Middle East and Africa, said: "The three mobile harbour cranes currently being commissioned are strategically important for the development of the Port of Berbera. They will enable more ships to be served at and ultimately increase the flow of trade to both the country and the region. As construction work for the expansion of the port progresses, we are witnessing a transformation in the capacity of this major infrastructure asset, benefiting people both here and across the Horn of Africa. DP World Berbera provides an effective alternative gateway to international markets and is proving beneficial to the people of Somaliland."

    The investment in the new cranes is the latest in a series of improvements to the Port of Berbera. Since 2017 DP World Berbera has introduced state-of-the-art container handling equipment, vehicles and systems as part of its push to modernise the historic port. In 2019, DP World also launched the Zodiac Terminal Operating System, Oracle Finance System, and Maximo Enterprise Asset Management System to deliver faster and better services for shipping lines. DP World Berbera staff are being trained to operate the cranes in Dubai as part of the local talent development program that provided training to more than 2,700 Somalilanders in 2018.

    Looking good, is it going to serve jig jiga and eastern Ethiopia, while central and souther ethiopia depends on Djibouti port.

    Because of dp world it’s now quite expensive to import cars from overseas. I wanted to bring over a used Toyota RAV4 from the US but dp world charges import tax of $3500 for each car. Is bosaso port also the same ?

    Nope Bosaaso is still kind of like an informal port, pay the right people and you'll go thru result maybe a few hundred.

    I was thinking about this but then gotta drive all the way to burco

    It’s hard to bypass the custom fee unless you’re related to one of the bosses at the port.
