The 30 years’ history of our organisation is knotted with the incredible development of Mauritius.
A combination of business insight, timely investment andambition set in the motion for a series of actions which have taken CHCL to be amongst the most respected and recognized Port Operators in the African- sub-Saharan region.
Under a Concession Contract with the Mauritius Ports Authority, Cargo Handling Corporation Ltd has the responsibility to load ,unload,receive and delivercargoes in the most efficient way.
In addition to the provision of the said conventional services, the CHCL offers a number of value added services amongst which are transhipment of containers destined for other ports of call,providing ancillary services viz reefer monitoring, storage and transfer of containers, leasing of equipments, management of an Empty Container depot to name a few.
Safety and security are the two critical factors on which CHCL banks to ensure the handling of general cargo, certain bulk cargo and containers in a most timely manner. It is to be pointed out that the CHCL is fully compliant with the ISPS code and as such cargoes loaded at Port Louis have no difficulty in entering American and European ports.
