Welcome to Doraleh Container Terminal
In 2000, DP World and the Djiboutian Government established a joint venture, with the signing of a 20 year concession to operate the Port of Djibouti. That successful partnership led to the joint venture investment in the newly developed Doraleh container terminal.
Opened in December 15th, 2008, Doraleh Container Terminal (DCT) is the most technologically advanced container terminal in the African continent. Just 11 km south of the International Autonomous Port of Djibouti, DCT enjoys the same strategic location at the crossroad of the main shipping lanes connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. The port lies on the major east-west trade route with minimal deviation and provides a secure hub within the region for transhipment and relay activities.
