Dar es Salaam seaport is Tanzania’s most dominant seaport, serving as a gateway for Tanzania and its neighbours – handling 95% of the country’s international trade as well as transit to landlocked countries across Eastern and Central Africa including Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The cargo throughput at Dar es Salaam port has fluctuated in recent years but is anticipated to reach 28 million metric tonnes by 2025.

To ensure farmers in Tanzania receive agro-inputs in time, DCG developed unique logistics solutions and cargo handling services that have decongested the port, increased efficiency, and reduced cargo handling times. Through AECF’s Tanzania Agribusiness Window, the company has constructed the Kisarawe dry port and introduced an information management platform, which has helped improve transparency and efficiency, ensuring that farmers acquire agricultural inputs with ease, hence increasing production.
