The Tanzania-Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) is readying itself to move over 30,000 tons (30 million litres) of fuel per month, which the Government of Zambia has passed on to the railways from the road hauliers following the introduction of new regulations that reduced the maximum weight on loads transported by road in Tanzania.

TAZARA Managing Director, Eng. Bruno Ching’andu says TAZARA and Zambia Railways Limited (ZRL) are jointly discussing with fuel suppliers in Zambia on how best to effectively move the petroleum cargo from the East African Port of Dar es Salaam after the road transporters abandoned the commodity following Tanzania’s implementation of the East African Community Vehicle Load Control Act on 1 March 2019.

Mr Ching’andu says that by the end of April, TAZARA and ZRL would have finalised Service Level Agreements with petroleum suppliers, a development that would enable the two railways to hire additional tank wagons to transport the commodity into Zambia.
