About Us


The Massawa port is the primary port for import of cargos for the Eritrean market. The port has exclusive history, being based around a natural and protected series of bays with safe anchorages and good communication to the Eritrean hinterland. The current port was founded during 19th century and was initially developed by the Italian and British colonial powers. The post-world-war II the port felt into decline but is now, under the management and control of an Eritrea government, undergoing major rehabilitation and restoration of facilities and services.
