Moengo is a small village near the Cottica river. For at least 3 decades Moengo was the center of the mining activities of Suralco, who constructed the Moengo Port for the export of bauxite and the import of industrial materials and other goods.

In 2004, Traymore N.V. bought the Moengo Port and it was rehabilitated and ISO-9001 certified to facilitate current and future activities to connect South America & the Caribbean to the world.
