Gaborone Container Terminal

Gaborone Container Terminal (PTY) LTD is an internationally recognised Dry port operating in Gaborone and Palapye (PALCON).

GABCON uses the services of both Botswana Railways and Transnet to facilitate the movement of containers by rail to and from South African Sea and Dry Ports linking to the rest of the world’s international ports (which means Containerised cargo can be shipped on a Through Bill of Lading to Gaborone and Palapye, where we have offices).

In pursuit of being one of the key strategic goals of GABCON is to create a Regional Container Terminal HUB to facilitate trade within Botswana and the SADC Region (a strategy supported by the Botswana Government),  the terminal solutions and service standards are continually being enhanced to align with international hubs to meet the ever changing customer demands.

This dynamic organisation aims is in the process of expanding its container handling capacity and extending more value add services such as intermodal facility/ warehousing to consolidate cargo, stuffing and De-stuffing of containers and setting up a Car Terminal.



We will be the leading integrated logistics provider and container hub in the region.
