  • Profile

    The Namibian Ports Authority (referred to as ‘Namport’ or the “Authority”), is a state-owned enterprise, which was established by an Act of Parliament in 1994. Namport, together with its three subsidiary companies, Elgin Brown & Hamer Namibia (Pty) Ltd, Namport Property Holdings (Pty) Ltd and Lüderitz Boatyard (Pty) Ltd, are referred to as the ‘Group’.

    From its headquarters in Walvis Bay, Namport manages Namibia’s ports in Walvis Bay and Lüderitz.

    The Port of Walvis Bay, situated on Africa’s southwestern coast, serves a convenient and fast transit route, connecting southern Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas.

    The Port of Lüderitz, located 254 nautical miles south of the Port of Walvis Bay, caters for Namibia’s southern regions and provides access to South African markets in the Northern Cape.

    The stable political environment in Nami­bia continues to attract foreign direct investment, while its ports form a natural gateway for international trade, Strategically situated to offer direct access to principal shipping routes, Namibia’s connecting transport corridors enable the country to compete as a transport hub for all regional and international trade between the Southern African Development Com­mu­nity countries, Europe, Asia, the Americas and the rest of the world.
