Dear Valued Customer
SUBJECT: Tanzania temporarily STOPS cargo loading to Zambia and Democratic Republic of Congo (Katanga Region) – “UPDATE”
Further to our advisory on 15th May 2020, with the latest advice from our Tanzania office, Zambia has reopened its Nakonde border with Tanzania. However, due to heavy traffic and more than 300 trucks queuing up at border; trucks from both sides have been moving slowly. Moreover, drivers are required to undergo medical screening before crossing border which is leading to further delays.
The situation is not stable yet and we will keep close liaison with local authorities and concerned parties for any official notice and timely update to your good company of any new development. Please contact our local agencies if any assistance is required. You may also visit our website www.emiratesline.com for more details.
