Barge Shuttle Service

Lifting the standard of connectivity between Onne and Port Harcourt

West Africa Container Terminals and Max Shipping Services have teamed up to provide you with a seamless barge service that operates regularly (or on demand for larger requests)  between Onne and IBETO Port & Terminal in Port Harcourt, Nigeria's fifth largest city.

Think of IBETO Port - a secure, fully customs bonded facility - as a conveniently located extension of the West Africa Container Terminal.


  • Faster: Average of 3 hours by barge vs 4 by road to Port Harcout
  • Cost Effective: More than NGN 150,000 cheaper per container compared to road transfers
  • Reduced storage charges: 10 free storage days at WACT in addition to 3 free storage days at IBETO
  • Peace-of-mind: Reduced risk cargo damage or delays due to traffic, accidents or poor road surface
  • Convenience: Less travel time to clear your cargo and close proximity for returning empty containers
