We have spent the last year focused on enhancing these services via the Zambian Business Sectors and the Zambian Government directly. It is the purpose of the Zambian Dry Port to enhance the gateway of the Port of Walvis Bay to the world. The core factor of Zambian Businesses and the Zambian Government to utilise the services offered on the west coast of Namibia rather than relying on the congested, unsafe and unreliable ports of the east coast of southern Africa.
Our research has shown, with our relationship with Namport and the WBCG that the Port of Walvis Bay is faster, safer, more reliable and more economical that all other ports in southern Africa. The Lubumbashi – Ndola – Walvis Bay corridor is a far more direct and suitable route than all others. Durban, Beira and Dar Es Salaam ports and routes to Zambia all have logistical, over loading, delays, high cost and safety issues that Walvis Bay Port and the Zambia Dry Port and roads do not. The Port of Walvis Bay is modern and efficient and with the pre-clearing and stuffing and storing and loading facilities at the Zambia Dry Port means that any cargo bound for Zambia / Lusaka can be delivered from ship to destinations in 6-7 days.
We have agreed a new deal with Namport on the Port charges. All new business via the Zambia Dry Port will qualify for a 30% reduction on port charges. This can be a huge reduction on cost to client on any large order via the port of Walvis Bay. AUC will endeavour to launch a new marketing campaign informing all our contacts of this reduction to attract more direct imports to the port of Walvis Bay and the Zambia Dry Port.
