NACALA PORT PRESENTATION
VERSION 7.0 DATED 27.02.07
The Corredor de Desenvolvimento do Norte is currently served by a railway network that stretches for more than 2.000 km in Mozambican and Malawian territory
In the near future this system will be connected into Zambia, after completion of a 27 km stretch of railway line that will link the Nacala Port to Chipata, on the Zambian border.
The Corredor de Desenvolvimento do Norte Project represents a new concept in operations and management of infra-structures in Africa since it reunites one deep water port and the railway systems of two countries under a single and fully integrated private management and shareholding structure.
