Mwamadi further said the CEAR has also developed its technical capacity to deal with rain related issues which negatively affected the pass ability of the line last year.

 

“The cargo that has been moved this year includes sugar, diesel, fertilizer and general cargo. Projections are that the targets will be achieved as CEAR expects to move a lot of pigeon peas, sugar and maize,” explained Mwamadi.

 

“The increase in tonnage also means there is a building of trust in our services at the moment from clients but at the same time there is general increase in the cargo on the corridor from Nacala to Malawi and Malawi to Nacala,” added Mwamadi.
