Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) the world’s leading maritime services provider has recently managed heavy lift vessel project for Shanghai-based heavy-duty equipment manufacturer, ZPMC in Tanzania.
Last month, ISS Tanzania acted as port and discharging agents for the carrier, the Zen Hua 21 which was carrying two SSG (Ship to Shore Gantry) and seven RTG (Rubber-Tyred Gantry) cranes for the Tanzania International Container Terminal.
The arrival of these cranes is a major step forward in the ongoing development of the Port of Dar es Salaam where the Port Authority will add two additional berths to the container terminal in its ambitious expansion programme to transform Dar es Salaam into the regional logistic hub for sub-Saharan Africa.
