SH50 BILLION According to statistics, since the introduction of 100 per cent ex-hook railage in May this year, KPA dispatches at least 10 SGR cargo trains carrying more than 1,000 containers to Nairobi every day.
'KPA introduced an ex-hook railage, whereby cargo destined for Nairobi via the SGR is offloaded from the ship and loaded straight to the waiting cargo trains,' Manduku said.
It will also provide a shorter route for railage of traffic originating to/from South Africa to the lowveld, eastern region and Chimoio/Beira areas.
