QSE

La stabilité politique dont jouit le Bénin en général garantie un environnement de paix de convivialité et d’hospitalité propice au business. Cette situation offre au Port de Cotonou un avantage comparatif vis-à-vis de ses voisins. Conscientes cependant, que la garantie de la sûreté et la sécurité indices essentiels dans le choix d’une destination portuaire ne se décrètent point et provient de la somme des efforts que fournis au quotidien chaque acteur, les autorités du Port de Cotonou s’investissent depuis plusieurs années pour maintenir la plateforme aux normes prescrites par le Code ISPS (International Ship and Port facility Security Code).

The recent updating of operating and police regulations and the assistance of Belgian experts for the training and retraining of the actors have enabled the Security Officers (PSO) and the Qualified Security Officers in charge of port facilities (PFSO) to be equipped for the security of persons, vessels, cargoes and facilities both inside the port and its surroundings and along the various service corridors. A port is a border of entry and exit on a territory, which is why the Government of Benin is working to initiate strict measures to optimize security in maritime waters and on the various corridors.

The provision of a toll-free number (69 85 85 85) to sound the alarm and ensure permanent reporting to the port authority in case of threat, is part of this approach to ensure optimal security management on the port platform of Cotonou. You are concerned about the security of your cargo when embarking or disembarking! Well! Cotonou is your destination! This section is intended to inform you about the initiatives taken by the port of Cotonou in this area but also about the regulatory provisions in force. Our leitmotiv being to be close to your needs, your suggestions, testimonies, denunciations and others will be useful to us to maintain an optimal level of quality as regards safety and security on our platform.
