Dar es Salaam. The Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) will open a new office in Uganda in search of new market opportunities and increase the number of cargo destined for the country through Tanzania’s main gateway.

TPA’s Marketing and Public Relations acting director Nicodemus Mushi said this on Monday when receiving the Meridian Ace ship carrying 4,397 vehicles, breaking the record for the largest shipment of vehicles to Tanzania. “We have succeeded in Zambia, Rwanda, Burundi, Zimbabwe and in the next few days will be opening TPA’s new office in Uganda,” said Mr. Mushi.

According to Mr. Mushi, of the 4,397 vehicles, 23 percent were destined for for Tanzania while 77 percent for Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

“The main reason for the large number of cargo in our port is high security, quality service and seriousness about providing services,” he said.

The news about the opening of the new office came just a day before President Samia Suluhu Hassan went on a two-day state visit to Uganda to discuss such issues as transportation, energy, defence, trade and infrastructure development.

In November last year, President Samia Suluhu Hassan said Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni was surprised by the Dar es Salaam Port to have managed to transport 138,262 tonnes of cargo to Uganda while the country was using another port to ferry millions of tons of cargo.

“At the Port, we also made a request to Museveni to allow the Tanzania Ports Authority to open its office in Kampala so that it could simplify its operations for Ugandan traders, which he received with open arms,” said Ms Hassan on November 27 last year.

Volume of cargo in tonnes that Uganda imported via Dar port last year, as per data 138,262
