An expanded East African network of assistance for cargo facilitators on hinterland corridors serving the Port of Dar es Salaam has been announced by the Federation of East and Southern African Road Transport Associations (Fesarta).
Already known for its immediate intervention on behalf of transporters experiencing cross-border cargo issues, the association’s Transit Assistance Bureau (Transist) has now extended its footprint to include the Dar Corridor into the Copperbelt Province of Zambia and the mining areas of Haut Katanga Province in south-eastern DRC.
In addition to the Dar Corridor running from Tanzania’s main port through the border crossing of Tunduma and Nakonde, Transist will now also be operational on three central corridors.
These are the corridors linking the port with Kigali in Rwanda via Rusumo, through Mutukula to Kampala in Uganda, and into Nairobi via Namanga.
