About us

Port Overview is a unique, one-stop-shop portal with up-to-date container port information for importers, exporters and traders
from around the world who send cargo shipments to and from Africa.

Port Overview contains reliable, informative status updates on African ports and key inland connections from local African experts so that shippers and receivers can take correct business decisions about their import or export shipments.

Red, amber and green symbols for each port with short, to-the-point texts in multiple languages allow subscribers to use the information easily and immediately.

The independent African editors providing the information are supervised by Port Overview Regional Directors who are shareholders in the venture. These managers are located in Maghreb, West Africa, Southern Africa, East Africa, and the Horn of Africa.

These Regional Directors are logistics experts in their part of the world with an extensive knowledge of how their markets operate, ensuring their local editors on the ground provide the information that counts to subscribers.

Port Overview is co-owned by SeaIntel, the global leader in innovative maritime market intelligence and Appropriate Communications, a maritime and logistics PR agency focussed uniquely on the emerging markets.
