In international shipping and logistics, seaports can be treated as maritime logistics centers when they provide logistics services at the seashore and shore-land interfaces. Many ports in the world have an established experience in providing value-added logistics for ship-cargo consignments, but not all ports can claim a logistics-center status. Typical logistics functions of ports include cargo handling and transfer operations, storage and warehousing, break bulk and consolidation, value-added activities, information technology management, and other related services.

We have always taken into consideration building a reputation trust worthy among our customers. This has given us an opportunity in serving customer demand for geographic and logistic convenience. The depots undertake safe transfer to and from the ports, secure storage, and added value for both merchant and shipping line in delivery of their containers.


For smaller shipments, Less than Container Load (LCL) can be an excellent cost-effective alternative to air freight.  Shippers often have to weigh up the cost savings of waiting to fill a whole container against the excellent transit times and fast delivery offered by sending a part shipment. For regular small quantities that don’t need the speed of airfreight; LCL can be the perfect option.

LCL is a service offered by our Principals (NVOCCs and freight forwarders) who consolidate the different shipments into one container and send this to Douala.

Once the container arrives in port, Gespros handles the transfer, warehousing and storage, de-consolidation of the containers and liaison with clients for final onward delivery or collection.
