Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (05 May 2023)

The Ethiopian Shipping and Logistics enterprise has announced that the Mekelle dry port and terminal have returned to normal service. The dry port had been non-functional for the last two years due to the conflict in Northern Ethiopia, which had disrupted the region’s economic and social services.

The announcement comes in the wake of the peace agreement signed between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) in Pretoria, which has led to the resumption of several public services and commercial activities in the region.

With the dry port and terminal now operational, incoming cargoes destined for Mekelle will be able to open operations from the seaport of origin to Mekelle, starting from May 4, 2023.

This development is expected to bring much-needed relief to businesses and individuals who have been affected by the prolonged conflict in the region.
