Ethiopia has two major dry ports, Modjo Dry port and Semera, another dry port 560km from the capital Addis Ababa with the capacity to handle about up to about 70% of Ethiopia’s imports. The country plans to build four new dry ports at Moyale, Mekelle, Woreta and Dire Dawa to accommodate growing import demands. This has led to the creation of infrastructure links with the dry ports and seaports in Somaliland, Djibouti, Kenya, Sudan and South Sudan.
