DP World has launched a dedicated container service from Maputo in Mozambique to Harare in Zimbabwe, and is planning further services to connect Maputo with Zimbabwe, South Africa and Swaziland.
DP World Maputo holds a concession to manage the container terminal at Maputo. It said the rail freight service which it launched on June 11 would reinforce the port’s position as a gateway to Zimbabwe, and would offer ‘a multitude of new business opportunities’ for customers in the two countries by offering a faster and more direct alternative to road.
‘This rail service between Maputo and Harare is key to reopening the route between these markets to drive more efficient logistics in the region’, said DP World Maputo CEO Christian Roeder. ‘Through this service, which we will facilitate and handle all port and border documentation, we can cut down transit times, give our customers better service and improve the connections between cities.’
Trains will initially run every two weeks, with an increase to weekly planned.
