TRANSNAMIB’S Road-to-rail Strategy Taking Momentum

As part of our Strategy to move more freight onto rail, TransNamib is developing various projects to achieve our objective.
During the past few months, we have been working with Ohorongo Cement on how to reduce the number of truck loads between Sargberg and the Northern regions of the country.
This partnership has yielded positive results as we were able to take more than 5,000 truck loads of the road between Otavi and Ondangwa.
Cement is now moved from Sargberg to Ondangwa Station where it is distributed to the local areas such as Ondangwa, Oshakati, Ongwediva, Oshikango and other surrounding areas.
This specific route is one of the busiest roads countrywide and this reduction of volumes en route is definitely contributing a safer road and journey for passenger vehicles.
We believe that partnerships such as this with our clients will continue to assist Trans-Namib to grow freight volumes by rail, but also make our national roads much safer.
The concept of servicing the local surrounding areas through our stations such as Ondangwa is a concept that we are developing to service our customers better.
