Boluda Corporación Marítima, the world’s leading maritime towing company, strengthens its partnership with Togo, highlighting its capacity for expansion, growth and internationalisation.

The main purpose of this meeting was to evaluate the effectiveness of the public-private partnership between Boluda and Togo, in the framework of the tugboat activities in the Autonomous Port of Lomé. During the meeting, the management of Boluda Towage also announced the arrival of a new tugboat.

This new tug represents an important milestone for the Autonomous Port of Lomé and especially for the Lomé Container Terminal. By allowing access for larger vessels, it will contribute to increasing the capacity of the port and strengthen its competitiveness in the region. The announcement of the arrival of this tug demonstrates the continued commitment of Togo and Boluda Corporación Marítima to work together to improve towage services and support the development of the Autonomous Port of Lomé.

In addition to this good news, the meeting also gave both sides the opportunity to discuss the competitive situation of West African ports. This discussion proves once again that both parties are cooperating to improve towage services in Togo.

The Port plays a crucial role in the economy of Togo and in the competitiveness of the region. By strengthening their partnership, Boluda Corporación marítima and Togo are committed to further improving towage services and supporting the growth of the port. The imminent arrival of the new tugboat marks an important milestone in this collaboration and offers promising prospects for the country’s economic future.
