Tanzania Cuts Port charges for Zambia

Tanzania Port Authority has revised downwards Wharfage Port Charges for containerised cargo to Zambia.

The revision in charges, which is by more than 50 percent, is aimed at reducing the cost of doing business.

And, Transport and Logistics Minister FRANK TAYALI, is happy that the Tanzania Ports Authority has moved to revise downwards the charges.

Mr. TAYALI says this will promote trade by serving Zambia cargo volumes through the Dar -es Salaam Port and other major ports that include Tanga and Mtwara Ports.

The Minister says the move by Tanzania granted to Zambia demonstrates the huge gains that the country is poised to gain from the economic diplomacy espoused by President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA.

Mr TAYALI has since called upon the Zambian business community to take advantage of the gesture and grow their business.

This is according to a statement issued to ZNBC News by Ministry of Transport and Logistics Public Relations Officer NDUBI MVULA.
