TAZARA aims at tripling cargo tonnage

Oct 10, 2016: The Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) aims at increasing its cargo haulage capacity from 600,000 per annum to two million tonnes over the next five years inorder to make it more economically viable. This is after a joint partnership entered between TAZARA and Zambia Cargo and Logistics to offer a complete loop of logistics services. At the 7th East & Central Africa Roads and Rail Infrastructure Summit held last week in Dar es Salaam, TAZARA, Managing Director Engineer Bruno Ching’andu told participants the process is underway to amend the law governing the establishment of the authority to meet its new commercial objectives in order to compete in the market competition in the East and Southern transport market share. He further added that it is set to undergo major changes to improve its performance and benefit the economies of the two countries as of currently the authority gets only 5% share of the Dar es Salaam ports cargo but strategically business is going on to reach up to 60% of the market share through the port. The rehabilitation of 400 wagons has boosted and improved the services delivery with the transit time average from 30 to 6 days with maximum security and safety.
