Portside’s Guide to Tema Port
Tema Port is the bigger of two seaports of Ghana, handling 80 per cent of the country’s national exports and imports. The harbour is situated along the Gulf of Guinea, 18 miles from the capital Accra, and it serves both as a loading and unloading port for goods, both for Ghana and the land-locked countries to the north.
Below, we’ve provided a guide to Tema Port that includes technical specifications, information on entry to the port, important contacts, required boarding documents, supplies, nearby ports and plenty more. You can view the live version of this information here.
