New trade route to open up West


TRANSPORTATION of goods and services to and from Zambia’s North- Western Province and Walvis Bay in Namibia is expected to be eased following the opening up of a new trade route.
The project, which has so far gobbled US$2.8 million and has been financed by Buks Haulage Limited (BHL), has enabled First Quantum Minerals (FQM) to transport 30 percent of its copper anodes through the corridor.
BHL chief executive officer Buks van Rensburg said copper from the province is now being transported through Kaoma to Sesheke, which borders Namibia, cutting the distance by 400 kilometres (km).
Previously, copper was being transported via Chingola to Livingstone, spending about two days in transit
