With a population of almost 3 million, Addis Ababa is the largest city and the capital of Ethiopia. Over 100,000 people in the capital are engaged with trade and commerce, making Port Addis Ababa a busy and desired port for many clients both importing and exporting cargo. However, Ethiopia is a land-locked country, and Port Addis Ababa is actually located in Djibouti, where Ethiopia’s cargo is transported through the Addis Ababa railway into the Port of Djibouti.
A significant import into Addis Ababa is construction equipment and automobiles, but other goods, with the exception of liquid bulk, are transported there as well. Port Djibouti and Addis Ababa can accept Caterpillar, Kobelco, Hitachi, and Komatsu equipment, as well as all types of vehicles, both in containers and on roll-on/roll-off vessels, for import into Ethiopia through Djibouti.
