Fast track to Zimbabwe
DP World Maputo has dispatched the first dedicated container train connecting Maputo (Mozambique) and Harare (Zimbabwe). The new service will not only enhance DP World Maputo’s position as a gateway to Zimbabwe, but also improve transit times within Zimbabwe.
In the past, transit goods on their way to Harare would often have to be transported far greater distances by sea and road, but the new connection will give a direct and faster option for delivery.
The rail service’s operations will be expanded in coming months, DP said. The company will continue to develop the Maputo corridor by investing in new infrastructure and Maputo’s container terminal capacity. (ben)
