  • Profile

    The Port Walvis Bay is Namibia’s largest commercial port, receiving approximately 3,000 vessel calls each year and handling about 5 million tonnes of cargo.

    The Port of Walvis Bay is a secure, efficient and world-class port. Temperate weather conditions are experienced all year round and no delays are caused by weather.

    Its world-class infrastructure and equipment ensure reliable and safe cargo handling.

    The Port of Walvis Bay handles container imports, exports and transshipments, as well as bulk and break-bulk of various commodities.

    Namport serves a wide range of indus­tries such as the petroleum, salt, mining and fishing industries. Both bulk and bagged salt are exported from the Port of Walvis Bay.

    The transport corridors managed by Walvis Bay Corridor Group make access to the hinterland easy and fast. As such, the Guateng market in South Africa can be reached via the Trans-Kalahari Corridor instead of going via Durban or Cape Town, saving 7 to 11 days of transit time. Transit time from Antwerp to the Port of Walvis Bay is 17 days.

    Deep-water anchorage is available inside the harbour, and is protected by the natural bay and by Namport. The port is compliant with the International Ship and Port Facility Security code (ISPS). In order to deal with even higher levels of throughput, Namport have steadily improved its cargo-handling facilities, and remains committed to infrastructure development, in line with Namport’s Mission to provide efficient and effective port and related services.
