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.

Key outputs include;

  • Support to TPA to undertake transformation towards a more business-oriented organisation and gradually towards a full and efficient landlord;
  • Improved port productivity by strengthening operational procedures, cost accounting and tariff system and capacity building of staff;
  • Support towards the Improvement in Spatial Efficiency at Dar es Salaam Port to ensure better use of space at the yards and improve roads and gates system to facilitate smooth flow of traffic;
  • Support in completing preparatory studies to enable major Infrastructural Development activities for capacity expansion and the Dar Port Channel Improvement.

How:

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