Maputo Port capacity may quadruple by 2025
 
Maputo, 30 Nov (AIM) – The Chief Executive Officer of the Maputo Corridor Logistics initiative (MCLI), Brenda Horne, has announced that the amount of traffic handled by Maputo port could grow from the current 10 million tonnes per year to 48 million tonnes by 2025.

Speaking in Johannesburg to the Portuguese news agency Lusa, Horne also said that the new one-stop border post between South Africa and Mozambique at Ressano Garcia is about to begin functioning for buses and taxis, saving time in the crossing between the two countries.

The one-stop border post for freight, which came into operation earlier this year, has provided significant savings in travel time for those South African operators who use Maputo port for their exports and imports.

“Trucks equipped with satellite tracking systems enable us to calculate that the trip between the border post and the port, the unloading and the return now take around five hours, which is fantastic, if we compare it with the ten hours needed previously”, said Horne.

MCLI is a grouping of South African and Mozambican companies created to boost the use of Maputo port and the road and rail links between the port and South Africa.
