Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Freeport of Monrovia is the main commercial port facility in the West African nation of Liberia. The port was artificially created on Bushrod Island near Monrovia in 1948. The port facility contains four piers and one main wharf with four berths. The port also has tanker facilities and a fishery pier. The National Port Authority operates the port. As early as 1850, seagoing ships began exporting palm oil from a port at Monrovia. During World War II, American military forces landed in Liberia to ensure the flow of rubber exports for use in wartime materials.show more
