Why this project?

Transport demand across the Dar es Salaam Port has been growing strongly, leading to congestion and delay at the Port. Studies have shown that the Dar es Salaam Port layouts, off-take processes, stacking arrangements and marine services are in drastic need of modernization. They must suit the needs of modern container, dry and liquid bulk handling requirements and technologies and the sharp growth in traffic and daily freight tasks. The land immediately surrounding Dar Port is also characterised by poor and inadequate infrastructure, uncoordinated development and a mushrooming of poorly regulated activities.

What:

The project focuses on supporting TPA to become an efficient trade gateway through public and increased private sector investment.

How:

TMEAs support to Tanzania Port Authority is delivered through financial aid and technical support.
