Swissport improve Tanzanian import/export facilities

Swissport is Tanzania's leading aviation services provider, and in a bid to improve export and import facilities, its plans to build an import warehouse worth $13 million (Tsh.26 billion), to be completed at the end of this month. 

“Anticipated growth of the aviation industry in Tanzania will just be a pipe-dream in the absence of reliable export and import aviation service providers,” said Swissport Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Gaudence Temu.

Describing specific improvements made, Temu said current Swissport’s cold room facility with regard to exports had been expanded, as new arrangements would allow scanning/screening directly into the acceptance cold room. 

He noted that existing cold rooms has been partitioned into two: 200-square metre area and 100 square metre-areas to provide for different environments and for a clear segregation of PER commodities.

According to him, the newly-installed export facilities have the capacity to store perishable goods such as flowers and vegetables from the northern circuit and southern highlands, which he says have great potential for the promotion of exports in Tanzania.
