Seychelles Ports Authority aims to minimise congestion during expansion work.

The Seychelles Ports Authority is working with port users on new measures to reduce congestion at Port Victoria when expansion work starts next year, said a top official. “We want to see if there are things that could be changed to allow faster clearance of containers which is now a major problem,” said Franky Laporte, the director of project and infrastructure told SNA.
Laporte said the congestion is sometimes caused by how the port is being used and gave the example of some clearing agents storing containers in certain areas at the port before doing their clearance procedures. He said this needs to change.
