CMA CGM was the first line to launch a container vessel into Djen Djen in October 2013 in order to offer a solution without congestion to its customers used to import via Bejaia.
For more than one month, Bejaia has once again been facing a severe congestion (from 10 to 30 days waiting time for ships before getting a berth).
Djen Djen remains the good alternative to Bejaia for some receivers.
The main advantages of Djen Djen port are the following:
- Congestion free
- Ideal location: approx. 100 kms (East direction) from Bejaia and road connections to Sétif, Constantine…
- Improved Transit Time compared to POD Oran
