Geographic location


Located at the crossroads of the maritime lines connecting Europe to South America and North America to South Africa, the Port of Dakar enjoys an exceptional geographical position. This allows vessels coming from the North to have a navigation gain of two (2) to three (3) days compared to other ports on the West African coast.

PAD offers a stable and well-secured 177- ha water body, a 195m- channel recently dredged to -13 m that stretches from the landing buoy nº. 12 to the Container Terminal (which required the removal of about 700,000 m3 of residues).

The port of Dakar is perfectly signposted, and is one of the few ports on the West African coast where vessels of all types can access at all times thanks to the exceptional nautical conditions of the site (maximum tides levels vary between 0.20 and 1.80m).

The strategic vision "Port of Excellence by 2023" is reflected in the policy of wharf specialization that is supported by performance, efficiency, security.
