Summary of BJPAR

Parakou port (Port Code:BJPAR) is the site of a proposed inland port. The dry port is a multi-modal platform located 3 km from the centre of Parakou, close to the railway. It gives the Backbone Project a strategic position for imports and exports to neighbouring countries, notably Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Togo.
The railway runs northward from Cotonou, Benin’s major port and commercial centre on the Gulf of Guinea, to Parakou, whence goods must be transported by road to the navigable Niger River and into landlocked Niger.
