The Joint Venture Company, Nectar Sierra Leone Bulk Terminal, was successful in winning a tender issued by the Government of Sierra Leone in 2014 to run the bulk terminal at QEII port. The company has set out to meet international high standards in all aspects of operations and has invested significantly in equipment and infrastructure to provide the necessary services needed for all areas of port operations. New handling equipment, improved warehouses, security and lighting are all being implemented to provide a better user experience. In 2017, NSBT also took over a 5.4 acre piece of land at the rear of the port on a long term lease and is currently redeveloping this area for agricultural imports and exports.
