London, 18 Aug (AIM) – The international logistics experts Unifeeder has added the central Mozambican port of Beira to its Mozambique-India-Jebel Ali service to boost trade and connectivity.
The new network transports containers on a round-trip from Maputo, Jebel Ali (Dubai), Mundra (India), Nhava Sheva (India), Mombasa (Kenya), Beira, and back to Maputo.
In a press release, Unifeeder stresses that Beira is a strategic port, playing a crucial role in connecting the landlocked countries of Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi to global trade. It adds that “its strategic location and efficient infrastructure make it a key hub for commerce in the region”.
According to Unifeeder, as a result of the integration of Beira into the existing supply chain network, customers can expect more efficient and reliable transport services.
In particular, “the seamless flow of goods and commodities between India, the Middle East, and East Africa will not only reduce transit times but also lower costs, benefiting businesses of all sizes. This enhanced connectivity will unlock new trade routes, allowing businesses to explore untapped markets and expand their reach”.
Unifeeder is a subsidiary of DP World, a multinational logistics company that holds a 30-year concession to operate the container terminal at the port of Maputo until 2033, with an option to extend for a further 10 years. Globally, DP World made a profit of 651 million US dollars in the first half of 2023.
