Grindrod Intermodal expansion

Grindrod Intermodal expansion

December 01, 2016

As part of an on-going strategy to expand its footprint in Southern Africa, Grindrod Intermodal (GIM) has acquired a dry port in Nacala, Mozambique. This acquisition, which came into effect on 1 November, provides a base enabling Grindrod to develop further intermodal operations to include integrated cross-docking and freight packing station services.

The Nacala Intermodal Terminal (NIT) is a partnership with Terminals de Norte (TDN). NIT is currently contracted to the Port of Nacala for the provision of empty container handling and storage services as a result of the limited  container capacity in the port.

NIT is situated five kilometres from the port, it covers an area of 40 000 sqm, has two container handlers and a full staff complement. The container facility has a capacity of 3000 TEUs.

There are many exciting opportunities linked to the acquisition of this business. GIM will offer full container handling and storage services as well as specialised reefer and container repair services. Warehousing services will be added to this portfolio in the near future.

The NIT Terminal Manager is Donovan Liedeman and he can be contacted on +258 84 452 6797 or via email
