In an effort to boost chrome exports, Transnet Freight Rail has signed a cooperative agreement with its Mozambican counterpart, Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Moçambique.
This new model replaces the operating model that involves exchanging locomotives, with five crews from origin to destination, as this resulted in delays. The rail will be from Belfast in Mpumalanga province to Maputo Port in Mozambique. Transnet says the move will help reduce about 200 trucks transporting chrome and ferro-chrome on the roads.
The country has about 70 percent of the world’s total chrome reserves. It’s also the largest producer of chrome ore in the world.
