According to a post by the Manager of Berbera Port, Mr. Said Hassan Abdillahi, Somaliland is shipping more than 3000 camels to Egypt, its largest shipment of ever of camels.
Mr. Abdillahi explained that the port has all the facilities that make it possible to handle such large quantities of camels which he described to be the most difficult of all livestock.
An unidentified captain with Mr. Abdillahi stated that despite the expected slowdown of global shipping, Berbera Port has never been busier. Currently docked ships include the Panamanian flagged Yosor due to depart for Egypt and the MSC Jasmine container ship waiting to dock.
