NCZ to produce compound D

Zambian  Fertilisers has partnered with transportation companies to ferry 33,000 tonnes of raw fertiliser from South Africa to the Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia (NCZ) to produce compound D.

The transporting companies include the Zambia Railways Limited (ZRL), Transnet Freight Rail of South Africa, New Limpopo Projects Investments, and Beit Bridge Bulawayo Railways of Zimbabwe.

ZRL managing director Christopher Musonda said so far, about 10,000 metric tonnes has been loaded, and the first consignment of 1,000 tonnes arrived in Kafue last week.

He said in a statement availed to the media yesterday that the raw fertiliser will be used by NCZ in the production of compound D fertiliser.

“As ZRL, we are committed to providing an efficient transport and other logistical services for bulk cargo at the most competitive rates, so as to empower our clients to do more.

“The bulk cargo includes chemicals, agriculture products and heavy equipment being imported into Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo [DRC] for various customers’ operating factories,” Mr Musonda said.

He said ZRL will continue to play a pivotal role in various economic sectors of Zambia through transportation of various bulk commodities such as fertiliser, diesel, petrol, coal, copper, sugar, cement and steel coils, among others by providing the much-needed relief to the roads, as this will prolong their lifespan.

Mr Musonda said the good business working relationship that ZRL enjoys with the railway administration in the sub-region allows the smooth transportation of imports, exports and transit commodities.

“We encourage other customers importing goods into Zambia or DRC to contact ZRL for logistical solutions,” Mr Musonda said.
