Originally a small fishing village, Tema blossomed into the nation’s largest sea port after the construction of a large harbor in 1961. Located 25Km (16mi) east of Accra, the capital city, the Port of Tema handles 80% of the nation’s import and export cargo. The port includes a container terminal and various off dock container terminals. International construction equipment shipping and international automobile shipping terminals and car parks are also available in the port of Tema. Heavy Equipment Shipping to Tema, Ghana from the United States has grown over the years as the need for construction equipment such as excavators, dump trucks, motor graders and tractor trailers has increased.

Some notable features of the port include:

• The port is currently run by private operators
