Ethiopia is a landlocked country, thus lacking any sea ports. The government of Ethiopia has established the company Dry Port Service Enterprise (DPSE) for the development of dry ports in Ethiopia. Ethiopia’s first dry port development Modjo Dry Port, has started on a small scale end 2009, relieving the congested Djibouti.
Handling a throughput of 320 million tonnes per annum, the port of Rotterdam is one of the biggest ports in the world.
