Who we are

You’re all welcome to the new ENAPOR website!

The Administration of ENAPOR intends that the ports of Cape Verde be strategically oriented to an integrated management of the entire logistics and maritime business chain, taking into account the simplification of processes in its different aspects: transportation, production, storage, distribution and other services of value added.

One of the Company's essential objectives is to move from a traditional port system (transport and distribution chain) to a modern port system (logistics and transport chain), aiming to make ENAPOR a strong, dynamic and financially sustainable company.

Aware of its role as a provider of port services, as a general concessionaire of maritime and port infrastructure, and as a promoter of the integration of the "blue economy" business chain in Cape Verde, ENAPOR has been implementing a series of measures for the continuous improvement of its services and its relationship with customers. It is in this sense that we offer this new communication tool, aiming to ease the contact between all the ports of the country and, mainly, the access to the information of commercial transactions made with ENAPOR in a fast, secure and organized way.

To our clients and business partners, we are grateful for the efforts made during all these years, hoping to continue to deserve your trust in the permanent development of the national port system and, consequently, of the Cape Verdean economy.
