Pepel has a port in the Sierra Leone River used for shipping bulk iron ore via the mining company African Minerals (Shandong Iron and Steel Group)

The Marampa area is connected to an existing deep-water port, ship-loader and stockpile area at Pepel by approximately 80km of rail infrastructure.

It is proposed to introduce a more efficient balloon loop at the port.

An extension of this line to a deeper port at Tagrin Point is also proposed.
