The new dry port of Ressano Garcia (Mozambique) should make it possible to relieve the EN4 toll road connecting the two countries of the approximately 7,500 major carriers that use it monthly.
The infrastructure extends for more than 98 kilometers from the city of Maputo to the border with South Africa. Although not yet inaugurated, the new dry port will reduce the travel of trucks transporting minerals, especially chrome iron, between the two countries.
Accessed by rail, the new port is the result of a partnership between CFM, the Mozambican authority in charge of the ports and rail network, and The Logistics Group (TLG), a South African company.
According to the State of Mozambique, it has a storage capacity of approximately 250,000 tons of chrome iron ore, and requires an investment of $3.5 million to manufacture.
The platform is an integrated logistics sector. It provides outsourced port services such as customs for goods in transit, immigration services (drivers), etc. In addition to its road-rail modal transfer function, the dry port will contribute to improving road safety and reducing pollution associated with vehicular discharge in nature.
