TICTS supports agricultural development project
Tanzania International Container Terminal Services (TICTS) has announced its support for a Tanzania government agricultural mechanisation and development project with a TSh327m (US$146,400) storage waiver for a shipment of unassembled tractors.
The shipment includes 204 tractors, 180 disc harrows and 40 disc ploughs, which will be assembled by National Development Corporation (NDC) in collaboration with RUSUS Company of Poland at the Tanzania Industrial Park (TAMCO) in Kibaha, Coastal Region.
“As the main objective of the project is to provide tractors to farmers at affordable prices, thereby supporting modernisation of agricultural development, TICTS has waived the storage to reduce clearance costs,” said Jared Zerbe, chief executive of TICTS.
Mr Zerbe added that TICTS will continue to support this project by facilitating priority clearance for future government-ordered shipments.
The waived charges were to be paid by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment through the state-owned NDC. NDC acting director-general Godwill G Wanga has thanked TICTS for its contribution.
